Another great article from the Huffington Post, “How Mindful Children React Differently to Challenges”, by Renee Jain, describing through examples and illustrations the benefits of mindfulness training, and how it can effect your children’s decision making process and emotions when handling challenging situations.
…mindfulness is a skill which any child or adult can sharpen with practice. It’s a skill which the research shows can improve impulse control, calmness, kindness, patience, compassion, empathy, executive function and attention spans in children. It’s a skill we can give the next generation of kids to not only connect more deeply with others around them, but to really nurture a sense of self-respect and self-compassion.
