When you have a teenager, it’s important to be present, stay connected, and be available to your teen. That seems obvious, right? But many parents are on autopilot with their children and need some guidance on being a more “mindful parent.” In this BAM Radio segment, Dr. Regina Rei Lamourelle and I ask Raelynn Maloney, Ph.D., to discuss the problems of distracted parenting and to look at how we can move toward being more present and aware with our teens.
Raelynn Maloney, Ph.D., is director of A Mindful Place in Littleton, Colorado, where she practices as a licensed Counseling Psychologist. As an author, educator, and counselor, Dr. Maloney provides guidance to parents and children struggling with a variety of relationship challenges. Her upcoming book is called Waking Up: A Parent’s Guide to Mindful Awareness and Connection.
