FOSMM organized a coffee morning for parents
FOSMM organized a coffee morning for parents on Thursday, May 2nd, 2019, at SMM. Ms Aimen Ansari and Dr Meshal from Al Jalila Children’s Speciality Hospital were invited to share their expertise. Ms Aimen spoke on Mindful Parenting which was a very practical, research based presentation on how being mindful and aware of one’s surroundings and emotions helps one to respond to situations and people in a better way, regardless of the kind of relationship it may be. All the parents who attended the session found it very useful and requested FOSMM to have another session as a follow up. Dr Meshal was supposed to speak on Managing Anxiety in children, however, due to the lack of time, we had to postpone it to a later date. Ms Karen welcomed the guests and also thanked them afterwards. Around 45 parents attended the session.
