Welcome to Mindful Little Minds. My name is Sarah, and I’m the founder of Mindful Little Minds. I’m also a wife, a mother of four and a child and adolescent psychologist with over 13 years of experience working in mental health with children and families.
I am super passionate about the emotional and mental health of kids and teenagers. My wish for all children is that they grow up feeling safe, connected and unconditionally loved and accepted.
My mission is to nurture the emotional intelligence of children and give parents and teachers the skills and tools they need to build resilient, calm kids. I hope to remove shame and fear from our interactions with our children, and teach them how to express and manage their emotions so they can be their best selves.
Why emotional intelligence?
Research tells us that emotional intelligence is a greater predictor of future success than IQ. People with high emotional intelligence are able to identify and manage their own emotions, and are also in tune with the emotions of others. They have good interpersonal and empathy skills and can manage their emotions in response to different situations. In other words, they are resilient!
And the best bit? We can (and should) teach these skills to our kids. How? Through connection, mindfulness and play.
What will you find here?
A huge collection of games, toys, books and fun resources that promote mindfulness and teach children to identify, understand and manage emotions.
A selection of mindful parenting resources that will help you learn to manage your own emotions so you can be the change you want to see in your child.
Self regulation is a skill. Let’s teach your kids together.
