Introducing Children to Meditation

 Be Patient: As parents we should never set goals when teaching children meditation. Just guide them and let them be guided by their own energy towards establishing their own balances. Our presence is needed in guiding them to gain control over their feelings when they become restless.


Be a Part of the Process

When you tell them to relax, relax as well. Doing meditation together will be very helpful for your family as you will all be healthier, relaxed and focused as a family.

    Such a good post Kalyani – you have touched on a useful topic, yes, but also the tips and ideas that you suggest are so easy to follow and practical. When dealing with children, we definitely need and look for this kind of simplicity.

    Very impressed with your post Kalyani…during counselling sessions with parents having kids with ADHD I have never mentioned meditation eventhough it is quoted in the literature because I simply cannot do it myself….I am going to practice and recommend your ideas.Thank you.
