Contains a CD with guided meditations for kids. p. 11 The fact is that an increasing number of children are entering schools in crisis, unprepared cognitively and emotionally to learn. At the same time, educators confront the challenge of higher public expectations while dealing with diminishing internal resources to do their jobs well. We often mistake the symptoms of unmanaged stress in our children as inappropriate behavior that needs to be stopped. Children are reprimanded by teachers and parents for actions that are really stress reactions, rather than intentional misbehavior. The situation becomes a downward spiral of one stress reaction after another, and both adult and child are caught in it. p. 16 Children’s social and emotional functioning and behavior begin to stabilize around the age of 8, and can predict the state of their behavior and mental health later in life (L. R. Huesmann and N. G. Guerra, “Children’s normative beliefs about aggression and aggressive behavior” JPSP 72, no 2 (1997) 408-419). Tobin Hart’s book The secret spiritual world of children, “Mostly we teach by who we are and how we live. Our own development and that of our children are intertwined –we grow together.” It is important to be as committed to the development of your own inner life as you are to your child’s inner life.

    Interesting but not incredibly helpful. I need to stop reading these.

    This book is less of an informational book as it more of a direct application of the concepts of mindfulness in a way that introduces them as a bonding experience of mutual discovery. I plan to put in to practice many of the things that's suggested as I want these concepts to be something that my kids have a connection with. Everything I read that is in the arena of self help, neuroscience, and psychology seems to point to the practice of mindfulness as a way to afford yourself a better experien This book is less of an informational book as it more of a direct application of the concepts of mindfulness in a way that introduces them as a bonding experience of mutual discovery. I plan to put in to practice many of the things that's suggested as I want these concepts to be something that my kids have a connection with. Everything I read that is in the arena of self help, neuroscience, and psychology seems to point to the practice of mindfulness as a way to afford yourself a better experience on the journey of learning and gaining wisdom. I think mindfulness is perhaps the best tool you can have in terms of opportunities to self author your life and achieve the goals you want. It also helps you make better choices by being in the moment and noticing your thought process. The side effects of making this a big part of your life seems to be more personal happiness. While there are many books out there on the subject, this one is designed for action and not necessarily focused on arguing it's merits. That being said, I expect years of me diving into this subject and trying different things. I will update once I start implementing the CD and the scripts as the book intended.

    This isn't exactly a sit down and read it cover-to-cover sort of book, so I took the wrong approach in doing that. Rather it's structured as a sort of workbook or guide to go with the CD designed to teach meditative relaxation and mindfulness techniques. These are spilt into three main chunks by the age of the child, so you can skip to whichever chapter is relevant to you. The book does introduce done research behind the ideas presented which is fantastic, but it is much more a manual to trying This isn't exactly a sit down and read it cover-to-cover sort of book, so I took the wrong approach in doing that.

These are spilt into three main chunks by the age of the child, so you can skip to whichever chapter is relevant to you. The book does introduce done research behind the ideas presented which is fantastic, but it is much more a manual to trying hands on techniques for teaching children awareness of their emotions, an understanding of stress, and coping mechanisms. The language is at times a bit "woo woo" so it was easy to forget that the techniques and such are based in research, and that aspect did get quite tiring after a while. That's my only real complaint though -- overall it made me want to be a preschool teacher so I could have fun incorporating the activities and strategies into class time with a large group of enthusiastic younguns!

    The book is really only a tiny piece in seeing whether the content helps. It's all driven by the CD and exercises mentioned and I'm looking forward to trying it out in the coming weeks and observe if we all gain awareness and mindfulness while practicing some of the activity that the book and CD guide through The book is really only a tiny piece in seeing whether the content helps.

    Very secular! Guided (new age/secular) meditation aimed at children. Focuses on "mindfulness", breathing techniques and physical relaxation. :-/ 2 stars (vs. 1) for some helpful practical advice on the surface, but ultimately not worth wading through the icky new age beliefs.

    You need the CD to actually implement and teach these skills to kids (I was on ebook) Parenting should focus more on these issues to prepare for life. Would help kids face anxiety etc as they grow up

    This is a lovely, well-researched book that left me wanting more. Lantieri presents two essential strategies for building resilience in children at a variety of ages - progressive relaxation and being present in the moment. An easy read and important for all parents, teachers, administrators - anyone who works, plays, or lives with children.

    Didn't actually read the whole thing. It came with a CD with exercises. Seemed like too much work. Didn't actually read the whole thing. It came with a CD with exercises. Seemed like too much work.

    I'm so impressed that we are now teaching this to children in many schools. It's invaluable. I'm so impressed that we are now teaching this to children in many schools. It's invaluable.

    Pretty good. Kind of hokey in parts but has some techniques to help your own children or those you teach.
