Publisher's Summary

The techniques of mindful awareness have helped millions of adults reduce stress in their lives. Now, children - who are under more pressure than ever before - can learn to protect themselves with these well-established methods adapted for their ages. Based on a program affiliated with UCLA, The Mindful Child is 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 happening within you - your thoughts, feelings, and emotions - so you can better understand what is happening to you. The Mindful Child extends the vast benefits of mindfulness training to children from four to 18 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.

    "Older book - but STILL A CLASSIC."

    Once you can settle-in, past the narrator's robotic method of delivering the content, (I truly began to believe hers was a computer-generated voice!) often punctuated by a decidedly odd increase of volume and pace here-and-there, you'll be able to gain a LOT from this book! Be prepared to create several bookmarks and notes - there is a WEALTH of knowledge herein. A great place to begin learning about mindfulness from a child's - and adult's - perspective, and one I'm sure many of us will return to for re-'reading'.

    "great content, bad narration"

    While I think the contents of this book are excellent, the message is lost due to bad narration. I wish the author had read her work. The narrator used was not suited to this type of book. Pema Chodron she is NOT. I got the feeling the narrator was not familiar with mindfulness or meditation. She read the book like a news caster reporting live during a hurricane. Her speech was fast paced and hurried. Her tone sounded like she was scolding a child. I felt like I was listening to a politician defending them self during a debate. After only a short while this book gave me a headache and made me irritated. It's really disappointing because I am very interested in the topic. However, if you have previously listened to other mindfulness audio you know most speakers usually deliver the message with a calm, comforting pace and tone. This was the opposite. It stressed me out to listen to it very long. I highly recommend you sample the audio before buying. Since I believe the message of the book is worthwhile, I plan to buy a hard copy and read it. I couldn't finish the aubible version.
