Who It's For
Parents and caregivers wanting to find some time in their day to care for themselves, to improve their individual health and wellbeing, and find new and creative ways to destress.
Why It Empowers
This activity empowers parents and caregivers—those who too often have little time to prioritize their own wellbeing. Parents tending to their own needs are not only improving their own health, but they are equipping themselves to be more patient with their children, which can contribute to better child outcomes. Parents who prioritize their own wellbeing are also setting a good example for their children.
