Mindful Me Mindfulness and Meditation for Kids by Whitney Stewart
I was thoroughly surprised at how helpful this book was. I know it’s aimed towards children, but as an adult, a lot of the techniques used helped. I suffer from anxiety, therefore I’m a huge supporter of visualization techniques. Teaching children how to calm their mind in anxious or tense moments is helpful toward allowing them to develop healthy coping skills.
They also stress the difference to know when you are in an unsafe situation that you no longer need to practice mindful techniques- you need an adult. I really appreciate this. Teaching children not to tolerate certain levels of aggression from peers is just as important as teaching them how to accept their emotions and reactions to certain situations.
Overall I really enjoyed this book. As a parent, it provided me with a lot of useful tips to help my children through their rough patches. I highly recommend this book.
