WHY SHOULD KIDS LEARN TO MEDITATE? Because Mitch and I believe KIDS MATTER! Children, like everyone else on this planet, experience a range of challenging emotions, thoughts, and feelings. They are bombarded with outside stimuli like TV, video games, advertising, and social media. Many children are pressured to constantly achieve and are overly extended with activities. Because of this, children experience stress and anxiety. Most children find it hard to understand, process, and cope with the lumps and bumps in the road because they are not taught how. Our book MEDITATION, MY FRIEND teaches children how to make sense of things from a mindfulness perspective. Our book teaches children how to meditate so that they can learn how to become happier, calmer, resilient, and have better concentration.
