In today’s show, Episode 21, we have the pleasure of chatting with Clinical Social Worker and Writer, Carla Naumburg.

Carla is the author of two books, Parenting in the Present Moment:  How to Stay Focused on What Matters and Ready, Set, Breathe: Practicing Mindfulness with Your Children for Fewer Meltdowns and a More Peaceful Family Life.

Carla shares that she discovered mindfulness when she just wanted to learn how to stop yelling at her kids.

This conversation takes on a realistic, practical and funny journey as we explore what it’s like to be present in the midst of motherhood.  Carla is the first to admit how hard parenting is, yet she shares her personal experience and simple tips on how to deal with the constant distractions of daily life and how to find more peace, all while practicing self-compassion and grace.
