Calm Kids - The Book!
Help Children Relax with Mindful Activities
With an increase in bullying, Autism and child stress, simple methods like meditation and relaxation can help children cope more effectively.
This practical book by experienced meditation and Reiki Teacher, Lorraine Murray, is perfect for anyone who wishes to teach their children meditation to help them relax. Lorraine has taught these methods to children in schools and formed the Teach Children Meditation Programme on which this book is based.
As a primary school head teacher I have shared this book with parents and colleagues and have planned our Health Week around some of the meditation and relaxation activities contained in the book. Easy to read and full of practical tips; great for regular short activities to inspire children before learning, at the end of a PE session or at the end of day as well as longer sessions as part of our Health and Well Being Curriculum. Also helps calm a stressed head teacher when using meditation with the children (particularly on wet and windy indoor playtimes!)
The book helps any carer, educator or parent teach their child some simple methods that will help support their children mentally and emotionally through the use of relaxation and meditation techniques, whilst showing adults how to stay calm in challenging situations. The book provides support for complete beginners and those more experiened in practising meditation.
She has produced meditation CDs specifically for children and teenage stress. Lorraine has been practising meditation since 1997 and teaching since 2003. She has conducted her own research into meditation with children who are ADHD or Autistic. She is passionate about every child learning these tools in childhood to help them feel safe, balanced, peaceful and confident.
I started reading it last night and can't put it down. It's fantastic. Really well written and easy to read. It's going to do so much good.
The book will provide you with all the information and ideas you need to get started in teaching your children mindful activities. In addition to teaching you how to produce your own meditations, Lorraine gives lots of examples of scripts you can use for different age groups.
I just wanted to say that I received my copy Calm Kids which arrived this morning and what can I say?? Wow well written and researched I'm already half way through the book ands it's a great tool, my son had ADHD and we both meditate together when he feels stressed. I have achieved more things in life since having Ciaran 10 years ago. Thank you so much Lorraine.
The book helps you to understand how meditation works and the benefits for children. Plus there are chapters on working with Autism and ADHD, toddlers and babies.
The book is full of useful resources and top tips on how to work with different age groups including teenagers. It includes ideas on how to include mindfulness into every day activities.
