AbstractMindful parenting is a relatively new extension of mindfulness and is beneficial for the well-being of both parents and their children. In this study, an eight-week mindful parenting program was conducted in a Hong Kong community. The qualitative method was adopted to explore how the program could benefit parents with stress and parenting problems. Six participants were included in the interviews. Analysis of the qualitative data suggested four themes: enhanced emotion regulation, more compassion, positive changes in the parent-child relationship, and home practice consistency and obstacles. The practical implications of the mindful parenting program to improve parents’ emotion regulation and parent-child relationships are addressed. The limitations of this study and future research directions are also discussed.
