Product Description

Published USA, 2010
Based on a program affiliated with the University of California, this book shows parents how to teach mindful awareness to children of all ages. It extends the vast benefits of mindfulness training to children from four to eighteen years with age-appropriate exercises, songs, games and fables that Susan Greenland has developed over more than a decade of teaching mindful awareness to children. These techniques build children's inner and outer awareness and attention, which positively affects their academic performance as well as their social and emotional skills such as making friends and being compassionate and kind to others, while also providing tools to manage stress and to overcome specific challenges like insomnia, overeating, AD/HD, perfectionism, anxiety and chronic pain.
