Love The Meditations, Audible Format Only OK

I purchased this for my kids who are 5 and 8, and they really enjoy it. I can see how it helps them wind down and relax and fall asleep. The music and voice are calm and relaxing. I highly recommend the content for your children.
Things you should consider before downloading the Audible format.

- This is in a book format, so you can't put this in a iTunes playlist with one of the tracks followed by other soothing music.
- The chapters are not labeled, so you can't easily choose the meditation you want. You can't edit the chapter names to fix this.
- A little nit-picky, but the artwork that comes with the download is not what you see on the Audible site, it's a very low resolution picture of an older artwork. The text is illegible. You can't change this.

Overall - great meditations. I wish I had found this earlier. To do it over, I would buy the CD off of Amazon instead.

Bedtime Routine Staple

My 4 year old son was struggling to get into a healthy bedtime routine and settle down for the night. Adding Chrisiane Kerr to our nightly routine has changed that. Both my 4 year old a 7 year old request to listen to her when they get tucked in and I don't hear a peep out of them once I hit play.

Out like a light

I got this for my son (9), who is learning to deal with anxiety. I played it for him tonight and he was very excited and fell right off to sleep without a worry. What a gift for all of us.

=) thank you!

My daughter is 8 an was having trouble at school integrating with the other kids which was effecting her sleep. These programs by Mr Kerr seem to be helping both the sleeping and the school situation because Hollie is more calm & rested & better able to use the info I am sharing with her about boundaries & dealing with other people.

Good for adults, too

I have been feeling anxious lately, which has made it hard to get to sleep. I thought the sample of Bedtime Meditations sounded fun and interesting, so I decided to give it a go. I was out like a light in no time and didn't wake until morning (usually when I'm anxious and fall asleep, it's hard to stay asleep).

Works wonders for my 5 year old boy

I play this audio for my 5 year old boy as soon as he goes to bed. Before a chapter is half over, he is always sound asleep. Works wonders for my boy.

The author/narrator is from the UK so some of the phrasing and even terms are different than what you would hear in the US and Canada. However in my opinion this is a plus, as the unique voice (to him) has created a positive association that seems to very quickly trigger calm and sleep.

My daughter loves this

It really helps her busy mind relax and fall asleep. She has always had trouble falling asleep until now ( shes 7).

Moves too fast to be relaxing

The speaker talks fast and moves the action along too quickly. One minute the listener is in bed trying to relax and the next minute one is flying through the air into outer space and then in a beautiful field, then there's a tree to leave your concerns, then a gate and a beach and then underwater and whew!!! It's exciting but certainly not relaxing, not for me nor my grandson. He likes it, and listening to it at other times is fun and even relaxing, so three stars, but it's not helping at bedtime.

Works well, however... Audible what are you doing?

Works really well for my 3 year old, especially the last story, gets her really dozy and ready for sleep, BUT, at the end of the bloomin' story, right after the calm music fades away, all you hear is a loud American voice "AUDIBLE HOPES YOU HAVE ENJOYED THIS STORY" which is not what I want right at the end of a relaxation tape. Audible why did you add this? Other than that, it's 5 stars, would recommend.

Really Wonderful

I only joined audible yesterday and this was one of the first two CD's I bought. When I downloaded it, I never thought that it would work this wonderfully with my Kids.

I am a mother of four kids,11 years old girl,9 years old boy ,6 years old boy and 3 months old baby girl.The eldest three are very active and bed time is simply a daily nightmare for me with them.I really feel exhausted by the time I get them to sleep after that much of shouting and screeming when soft talk doesn't work.I have always run out of ideas to get them to sleep and it even got worse when I had to come to UK this year for my further studies because the flat I am living in is too small for them compared to the one we had back home.Changing the environment has made them even more excited about their school, their friends and their activities not to mention the nice city we live in in Scotland to the extent that going to sleep became such a difficult time for both of us.

We usually have fun in every thing we do throughout the day except the bedtime.I feel very upset after having to shout at them to take me seriously about going to bed especially that I know that these memories last for life.Yesterday I came across this CD and decided to give it a try.I have just finished playing it to them and for the first time in years I have had a nice wonderful bedtime with them listening to the CD.They have loved it soo much that they kissed me for it and begged me to make it part of their everyday bedtime rituals.I was so happy that I have decided to write the review right away for the mothers who have the same problem as I used to have.It really works wonders as I equally enjoyed it with them.

Meditation for kids is a miracle worker

I will rate this one million out of 10. The lady has a soothing English voice and talks directly to your child (+ me, hubby and cats), yes the cats listen as well, and uses language that a child relates to. For example, if you have any worries from school or home then place them on the worry tree, or in the boat and let them drift away etc. My child (8) will regularly ask for this especially if not a 100% well or has had a challenging day at school.. Superb.

Still never made it to Meditation 3

I'm 30 years old and after recently witnessing my dad's passing, I've not been able to sleep. I bought this hoping it would at least allow me a little respite and calming effect, and can honestly say it has surpassed everything. I listen to all 3 meditations each night, and I have never be awake to listen to number 3, I can't even say what it is about. Even on nights when I'm keyed up and agitated all through Meditation 1, I've never been awake to listen to 3. I have to listen every night to sleep, and I always wake fresh and rested. I dont even toss and turn at night anymore. Thoroughly recommend.

Brilliant!

This audio book has my 5 year old asleep in minutes! I try playing him other stories but each time he just says he wants this one...makes me sleepy too. Give it a go, it’s worth it!

Works like a dream after a few nights

Initially, my kids didn't get this. After a few tries, they now look forward to the story and it stops one chatting and keeping the other awake.

Wonderful!

Would you listen to Bedtime Meditations for Kids again? Why?

My 8 year old son finds it difficult to fall asleep, and loves this audio book at bedtime. It's light, imaginative and the narrator isn't creepy (as some meditation narrators can be). It's also a great length, which is a must for kids who don't drop off to sleep straight away. Of all the meditations we've tried for children, this is the best.

Fantastic,

My 8yo would often take a long time to fall asleep. The first time I played this he listened through the whole hour of this audible cd before falling asleep. Now, every night he is asleep before the end of his chosen story, about 15 minutes. This cd is played every night and has become an essential and loved part of his bedtime routine.
2020 Update to this review, he is 12 now and stil plays his 'meditation' while he falls asleep.
