64 Permission To Totally Ignore Your Children

Carla Naumburg

Carla Naumburg joins me again for their monthly segment on the Mindful Mama podcast. We talk about a wonderful article, Give Kids Your Undivided Attention – Or No Attention At All by Catherine Newman. This author never uses the word “mindfulness” yet gives us lessons like a modern-day buddha.

We discuss the idea of fully paying attention, then fully ignoring our children and how we can all benefit from this. We talk about the power of immersive play for children, and get real about how realistic this is.
