Mindful Parenting is the practice of bringing attention and acceptance to your moment-to-moment experience with your children.  Mindfulness practice can be done formally and informally by paying attention to thoughts, sensations, feelings, emotions, and behaviors in the moment, nonjudgmentally.  Becoming more mindfully aware of yourself and your children can better prepare you to meet the daily challenges of parenting and to respond mindfully versus reacting impulsively.  This blog won’t make you the perfect parent nor help you raise a perfect child, but it may assist you in being more aware and able to ease through the turbulent times of parenting.

At the beginning of this month on April 5th, the sun in harmony to Saturn indicates a period of steady accomplishment. There can be success in overcoming obstacle and better relations with authorities as well as an increase in patience, good planning and organizing. This is especially helpful for Sagittarians and Aries, both fire signs, who often need a little grounding.

The sun square Pluto on April 6th indicates issues regarding power and control which may be uncomfortable. There can be increased competition. The necessity to share and trust is especially poignant for Aries, Capricorns, Librans and some born in the sign Cancer.
