Following successful workshops delivered earlier this year, we are very excited to launch “Calm Parents, Happy Kids”! A series of workshops, helping parents and others looking after children and young people to take control of their busy lives and find moments of peace.









Gentle Parenting – Brought to you by Calm Parents, Happy Kids

Discover tips and tools to develop a more gentle approach towards you and your parenting.

Date: Wednesday 17th November from 7:00pm-8:30pm (UK Time)

Location: Zoom, link provided after registration     Cost: £10  *We also have a discounted recorded version ticket available for £7!*

Book your tickets here.

Our trainers, Marina Larios and Carolyn Usher, are busy mum’s themselves and are passionate about helping other parents make time for self-care and develop the resilience needed to juggle the many commitments that parenting brings.

Through these workshops, parents and carers can:

  • Experience guided meditations and breathing techniques
  • Learn simple mindfulness techniques to use themselves and with their families
  • Find ways to stay calm when dealing with challenging behaviour
  • Learn how a gratitude practice can improve your well-being
  • Reflect on the power of language and its impact on your kids

Carolyn says, “I had my 2nd child during the first COVID lockdown in 2020 and it was the most challenging experience I’ve ever been through. I am a yoga teacher and have a strong interest in Mindfulness and these practices really helped me get through my labour and the early days after my birth and continue to help me with parenting everyday. On my return to work after maternity leave, I really wanted to help other parents and carers learn how to incorporate simple relaxation and mindfulness practices into their day-to-day lives. I’m so pleased that we can offer these workshops!”.

Testimonials from previous Calm Parents, Happy Kids workshops:

“Excellent session! Really enjoyed everything that was covered and really key tools which I can use in my parenting of my teenager!”

“Absolutely brilliant. I’m not sure what I was expecting, but it exceeded any expectations that I had.”

“Open environment, well run, excellent!”

“As usual, very warm and compassionate delivery of the presentation, rich and engaging presentations.”

“Excellent pace and very pleasant and competent facilitator easy to relate to.”

Our next Calm Parents, Happy Kids workshop, will run on Wednesday 17th November from 7:00pm-8:30pm (UK Time).
