The techniques of mindful awareness have helped millions of adults reduce stress in their lives. Now, childrenwho are under more pressure than ever beforecan learn to protect themselves with these well-established methods adapted for their ages. Based on a program affiliated with UCLA,The Mindful Childis a groundbreaking book, the first to show parents how to teach these transformative practices to their children.Mindful awareness works by enabling you to pay closer attention to what is happeningwithinyouyour thoughts, feelings, and emotionsso you can better understand what is happeningtoyou.The Mindful Childextends the vast benefits of mindfulness training to children from four to eighteen years old with age-appropriate exercises, songs, games, and fables that Susan Kaiser Greenland has developed over more than a decade of teaching mindful awareness to kids. These fun and friendly techniques build kids' inner and outer awareness and attention, which positively affects their academic performance as well as their social and emotional skills, such as making friends, being compassionate and kind to others, and playing sports, while also providing tools to manage stress and to overcome specific challenges like insomnia, overeating, ADHD, hyper-perfectionism, anxiety, and chronic pain. When children take a few moments before responding to stressful situations, they allow their own healthy inner compasses to click in and guide them to become more thoughtful, resilient, and empathetic. The step-by-step process of mental training presented inThe Mindful Childprovides tools from which all childrenand all familieswill benefit.
