Your kids deserve inner calm, peace, happiness, and health. That’s one of the reasons why I have been personally advocating meditatation to schools for many years.
In a society of competition, constant stress, overt-simulation through media, and perhaps bullying at school, it’s not easy to make sure your child is healthy and happy.
That’s why I’ve created this guide to teaching your kids to meditate. With this guide, I want to help you to make sure that your child / children are happy, healthy, and inwardly peaceful.
From time to time I will be updating this guide so please follow me on my Facebook Profile or Twitter for updates. It also is really nice for me to hear from you guys and to have your support (it let’s me know that I’m doing something right
Now, to quickly introduce myself.
I’ve been teaching and writing about medtiation for ten years. In that time I’ve taught and / or been read by over 250,000 people. I’ve also helped thousands of parents to get their kids meditating. I know from first hand experience that meditation is immensely beneficial to children. That’s why I want to help get kids meditating.
So that’s me. Now, let’s take a quick look at why you might want to teach your child to meditate.
Why your kids should meditate
Longitudinal research proves that today’s youth experience higher levels of pressure and stress compared to previous generations. “The stress of getting good grades, high scores on standardized tests, and accepted at top-ranked colleges doesn’t encourage happy family dynamics,” says developmental psychologist Marilyn Price-Mitchell Ph.D.
In a world of sensory overload and school, family and internal pressures, kids need meditation as much as adults. Meditation helps kids develop focus, regulate their own emotions and learn how to pay attention inside and out.
When you teach your kids to meditate you’ll be helping them to stay mentally strong and healthy.
