Become a Calmer, More Present Parent
Parenting is hard, there’s no question about it. But in order to take the best care of your kids, you need to learn how to best take care of yourself.
Research shows that practicing mindfulness can improve mood, focus, compassion, and more–and can produce long-lasting changes in the way you lead your life.
By giving you tools to find self-awareness and balance, the Mindfulness for Parents Online Course can help you better navigate the challenges you face as you raise your kids.
Be a Role Model for Your Children
We all want to raise happy, confident kids who can take on any obstacle and grow into amazing people.
Your own example is the best way to give them skills that last a lifetime. As your kids see you confidently and clearly responding to life’s challenges every day, you’re teaching them how to do the same.
That’s why as an added bonus, the Mindfulness for Parents Online Course shows you how to adapt the mindfulness skills you’re learning and use them with your kids in fun, engaging ways.
Hi, I’m Dr. Steve Silvestro.
I’m a pediatrician, dad, and host of The Child Repair Guide Podcast.
I’ve also spent nearly a decade teaching mindfulness to parents, kids, and young adults.
Why? Because I know the impact it can have on your life. And for parents, that impact is magnified. The self-awareness, calm, and personal insights you develop from the mindfulness exercises in this course can help you be the parent you want to be for your kids, and the person you want to be for yourself.
Everything that I do—as a pediatrician, with the podcast, and with this program—is designed to help you feel more confident as you raise your kids.
This course might be one of the most important things I can offer you.
“I finished this two months ago. Whenever things get a little hectic, I still hear Dr. Steve’s voice in my head helping me reset!“

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is Mindfulness?
A: Mindfulness is paying attention to what is happening “in the moment” – being aware of what is happening inside and around you right now.
Q: What is Meditation?
A: Meditation is focusing your attention on one thing in the present moment. That’s why meditation is often the tool we use to practice mindfulness. In this course, you’ll learn several different types of meditations – but also other exercises and activities you can use to enjoy the benefits of mindfulness.
Q: How is Mindfulness helpful to parents?
A: That’s exactly what you’ll learn in this course! We now have nearly 30 years of scientific research showing that mindfulness practice not only has many health benefits, but also potentially permanent benefits for your frame of mind – research showing actual growth in the areas of the brain responsible for compassion, focus, and well-being. Anyone who’s spent just a day as a parent knows that these are things that we all need to work on in order to better navigate the challenges of parenting. Imagine learning how to get everyone dressed, fed, and out the door in the morning with ease. Imagine handling a toddler’s tantrum or teenager’s hormones with a calm, steady approach. Better still, imagine teaching these skills to your kids. Learning mindfulness skills not only helps us as parents, it also helps the children we raise.
Q: Wait, you’re a pediatrician. Why are you teaching this?
A: I love giving parents tools that not only help them raise happy, inspired, balanced kids – but that also help parents live inspired, happy, and balanced lives themselves. While I’ve long been interested in meditation and similar practices, my more formal training began 15 years ago in the Georgetown University School of Medicine’s Mind-Body Medicine (MBM) Program. I later trained to become a facilitator in the MBM Program, and have since taught these skills to medical students, undergraduates, parents, and pediatric patients. Portions of this course are adapted from Georgetown’s MBM curriculum, which has been researched and fine-tuned for 16 years.
Q: What if I get behind in the course?
A: No worries. We all know that the life of a parent can get hectic. That’s why there’s no end date for any lesson while you’re taking the course. You’ll have access to all of the lessons throughout the course session – so not only can you catch up any time, you can also go back and re-experience lessons that you enjoyed.
Q: Can I take the course on my phone? Computer? Tablet?
A: Yes, yes, and yes! You can participate on any device, any time, anywhere.
