Do parents stay or go?

Parents are welcome to drop-off their child and return at the end of class to sign out.  Parents are also welcome to observe quietly.

Staying or going depends on your child and the other children in the class. If your child needs help adjusting you are welcome to sit with him/her with the goal to eventually be independent. Some students do better with adults around, and others do not. If you need help deciding, let me know!

Dee DiGioia (di JOY uh) ~ Certified Mindfulness & Well-Being Life Skills Coach
Served youth for 30+ years, including those with social, emotional, behavioral, cognitive, and communication challenges in my roles as a Speech-Language Therapist, Autism Movement Therapist, Preschool Director, Bullying Intervention Specialist, Author, and more. Founded “Caring and Courageous Kids” in 2009 (bullying intervention), and founded “Mindful Kindful YOUniversity” in 2017. Pioneered a mindfulness program for K-5 classrooms at an inner city charter school in Sacramento, CA, and am developing youth and adult programs where I now live on the Central Coast of CA. Made a decision to follow my own advice for well-being by leaving the stresses and challenges of working in special education in the public school setting. Following my heart and calling to share mindfulness and well-being programs to address the challenges youth (and adults) face in school and in life, which interfere with learning, relationships, and mental well-being. I believe mindfulness is the missing piece (and peace) in education and am bringing my vision to fruition! I am grateful to have the experiences and resources to share the wisdom, science, and evidence-based practices of mindfulness and more, which have proven over and over to lead to greater resilience, more joy, and peace in life.
