Workshops

Mindhearted’s workshops create a safe haven for communicating about diversity so parents can gain self-awareness and have fun while discussing topics that tend to stump them. The lively, free-from-judgment discussion that often ensues will allow parents to look in the mirror and inspire them to Be Mindhearted.

“Mindhearted Parenting: Raising Open-Minded and Compassionate Children”

Length: 1-hour, ½ day or full day available

This core workshop explores and raises your awareness of how you see the world and people in it. You’ll become aware of how parents unconsciously pass off their biases to their children. And you’ll leave with practical tips and tools to revolutionize the way you parent and live.

Here’s what you will gain:

  • Diversity is not just about race or gender.
  • Talking to our children about diversity strengthens their own resolve to advocate for themselves leaving them less exposed to bullying.
  • A model to create meaningful conversations interspersed with teachable moments arising from ANY question.
  • An ability to create a safe space for your children to talk about all the things that keep us silent and separate from people we perceive to be different.
