Being mindful can be described as having a clear, calm mind that is focused on the present moment in a non-judgmental way. Mindfulness allows an individual to consider alternative ways to perceive and respond to a situation beyond what he or she previously realized. When applied to child rearing mindfulness involves taking a flexible attitude to one's children and looking for alternatives to methods that have previously failed to alter problem behaviour. A trial of a 12-week mindfulness training programme for mothers of autistic children in the U.S. found that it decreased their children's aggression, disobedience and self-injury and increased the mothers' satisfaction with their parenting skills and interactions with their children.
