Mindfulness practices help you become less reactive, so how can you share it with your kids? It helps kids enormously to carry with them a set of tools to help them whenever they get upset or life gets overwhelming. My guest today, Susan Kaiser Greenland, has made a career out of sharing these tools with kids in ways that truly make a difference.
1. Self-compassion, keeping a sense of humor, and taking care of ourselves are the three most important things for parents.
2. Mindfulness activities that help children when they are feeling upset or when they have “too much birthday.”
3. Teach mindfulness games to kids first when they are NOT upset, so there’s less resistance.
Susan Kaiser Greenland is an internationally recognized leader in teaching mindfulness and meditation to children, teens, and families. She co-founded The Inner Kids Foundation, a not-for-profit that taught secular mindfulness in schools and community-based programs in greater LA.
With warmth and lovingkindness,
