In this episode of The Balanced Educator Podcast, we’re interviewing Hunter Clarke-Fields, host of The Mindful Mama Podcast and author of the book Raising Good Humans about mindful parenting.

She talks about how to cultivate a mindfulness practice as a parent and how it leads to more skillful interactions with your children.
Hunter shares how to be okay with making mistakes as a parent and how self-compassion leads to growth. She coaches on how to handle big emotions and tantrums more effectively with less stress and judgement.
Finally, Hunter gives expert advice on managing conflicts between siblings.
