Stop losing your shit and show up in your role as a parent in a way that feels good to you

Help me be a mindful parent

Sometimes you want to be anywhere (literally ANYWHERE) other than with your kids…

Your rage is bubbling under the surface and can blow at the next “MOOOOOOM!”

As soon as your kid refuses their breakfast you feel antsy and annoyed at your life... immediately followed by a shame storm that sounds something like -

“I should be grateful… so many other people have it worse than I do.”

You want to raise mindful, kind and resilient kids, and you sense that it might take a bit more ‘leading by example’ than you’re currently doing.

But right now:

  • You find yourself losing your shit with your kids and you don’t like it

  • You feel run down and exhausted

  • It seems like there’s barely any time to sit down and take a deep breath, let alone ‘zen out’ enough to be kind and patient...so how is that possible!?

 

I get it.

 

I’m a mom to 2 girls and know the frustration, antsiness and bubbling rage - all of which was on steroids this year with the global pandemic.

...I get wanting to be somewhere (ANYWHERE) other than where you are… and then feeling guilty about it.

...I also get the hopeless feeling of wanting to change, but not really knowing how.

 

...and I get the feeling of overwhelm when you want to be/do something different (ie. more mindful) and you’re not sure how to get there or when you will be able to find time to actually do it.

And here’s the truth… reading a few mindfulness quotes on Instagram or listening to a podcast isn’t going to help you shift your automatic reactions when you’re triggered. It’s not going to help you throw your arms up and yell when your kid flips their pasta on the floor or says they will NOT put on their shoes or get dressed.

Help me be a mindful parent

Becoming a mindful parent isn’t a light switch that we can flip… it takes knowledge and practice.

And while there’s no quick solution to being a mindful parent and raising mindful kids, I can tell you that there is a path of more ease and fun.

One where you can get support and learn from someone who has done all the training and reading for you… so you can just show up to learn and dive into the practices.

Where you can get help from a trained professional and fellow busy mom who has the same fears and desires as you.

"I loved taking this course with Sarah – a nice mix of high-level philosophy and data-driven concepts for my 'scientist brain' to chew on, along with concrete, practical examples and tips/tricks that I’ve found are easy to utilize in my day-to-day life with 2 toddlers, when things are crazy and emotions run high."

"To say Sarah and The School of MOM has helped me become a better mom, wife, business partner, and boss would be a vast understatement. ... She has provided me with tools that have helped me be more present and appreciative of my time with my kids through mindfulness and the practice of discernment (the pause between feelings and action), and she taught me how to be less frustrated with challenging situations and/or people in my life through resetting my expectations and using boundaries. ... she has helped shape me into a better human for all of the people in my life, but more importantly for myself."

If you’re new to online programs, here’s what to expect as soon you purchase The Inner Work of Peaceful Parenting:

you’ll get an email granting you instant and lifetime access to the content — watch as many times as you like and receive any updates or new practices added in the future.

You can complete the modules at your own pace on your own time. Videos are intentionally short/snack size so that you can digest them easily in small bites.

This series offers you the training I wish I had when I became a Mom four years ago.

While I’ve engaged in extensive mindfulness and psychology training as a teacher and therapist,  the most important part of being a mindfulness teacher is that I am first and foremost a student of this work. 

It’s inspired by hundreds of hours working with moms who share the same vision and goals you do - ie. to be more mindful parents and to raise mindful, kind and resilient children.

And it’s designed to accessible but effective, so you actually learn and implement the powerful content inside.

Because let’s be honest - as moms we don’t have time for shit that won’t help us.

We don’t have time for fluffy.

We want the punchlines and the proven practices that effectively lead to change.

And as mentioned above, I’m not going to sugar coat this practice. There is work involved. You can’t sign up for a series and expect to absorb the benefits by osmosis. ;) Wouldn't that be so nice!

But… you can chip away at digestible and carefully curated information that is actually relevant and helpful to your life as a mom.

There’s a saying in meditation:
You should meditate for 20 min/day.
Unless you’re super busy, and then meditate for an hour.

The more realistic parent version of this is: Do you have 5 minutes a day to meditate? If not - you realllllllllly need to meditate.

Why? The scientific evidence behind Mindfulness meditation is decisive - it can lower your stress, increase your productivity and performance and offer you quicker access to patience and calm in the midst of daily chaos.

But I get it — mindfulness isn't usually the first thing we choose if we have a spare minute. Let’s be honest - scrolling instagram or watching Netflix is much more appealing than sitting quietly with your monkey mind.

Don’t get me wrong, I love a good tv series (just finished I’m Sorry and HIGHLY recommend it!), but keeping ourselves busy and occupied all the time quickly results in us being less efficient and less productive. In turn, this only makes us more stressed and more “busy!”

My mission with The School of MOM is to make the evidence-based practice of mindfulness accessible so you can reap all the science-backed benefits such as: more energy, more patience, less anxiety/stress/depression, physically healthier and improved sleep (amen!).

As a working mom of 2, I have intentionally created this program to accommodate moms with toddlers/young children running around.

All videos and integration practices are “bite size” (5 - 15 min) so you can watch them in the same amount of time as a Daniel Tiger/Doc McStuffins/whatever the current show obsession is (ours is Bluey!)...and even have a few extra minutes to spare for whatever else you want to do! 

And/or - you can listen to them on the go with the (free) app.

You’ll also learn how to integrate and practice mindfulness and self-compassion strategies throughout your day and WITH your kids. 

I'm ready to start

"Sarah opened my eyes to the power of mindfulness and gave me space to learn how to practice it. Sarah's expertise is only surpassed by her warmth, compassion and commitment to helping women cope with stress, uncertainty and life's daily grind. The School of MOM has enabled me to connect with a community of women who offer support, understanding and a sense of belonging in a world that can be isolating at times. I've only just begun to explore the practice of mindfulness and can clearly see the benefits of incorporating it into my life. I give all the credit to The School of MOM."
