  •  Practical strategies for acting and responding mindfully and effectively throughout this rich and challenging period.
  • How to encourage progress towards the 7 essentials of happy, healthy tweens/teens. (Secure attachment, self control, academic success, social thriving, emotional flourishing, strong character, physical health)

Join Indigo Lewis in this “Wise Minded Parenting” class where you’ll learn how to tap your “wise mind” to calmly navigate even the stormiest of parenting moments.
