It can help you and your children connect with values and be the best version of yourselves. Give your child and yourself the resilience-boosting gifts of mindfulness and self-compassion.

About Jamie Lynn

I’m Jamie Lynn Tatera, creator of the Self-Compassion for Children and Caregivers (SCCC) program. I used to be an elementary school teacher, but after I had my first daughter, I began to focus on sharing wellness skills with parents and educators.  Amidst unique parenting challenges, I discovered self-compassion, and my life was transformed. A decade later, I’m a certified mindful self-compassion teacher who empowers children, educators and families across the globe to comfort themselves during their difficult moments and motivate themselves with kindness.

“Self-compassion is an inner resource that nourishes and strengthens us throughout our lives.  Fortunately, self-compassion can also be learned, and the sooner the better.  The Self-Compassion for Children and Caregivers program is a brilliant adaptation of the MSC program that captures the essence of self-compassion for kids and their caregivers.  I’m so grateful to Jamie Lynn Tatera for seeing the need and meeting it in a manner that is both profound and delightful.”-Christopher Germer, PhD, Co-Developer of the Mindful Self-Compassion program
