Who it benefits…

Children of all ages and abilities can benefit from meditation. So long as the correct and appropriate method is applied to suit the childs’ level of understanding:

Baby Buddha’s

This isn’t about tying your baby into knots and leaving them in the lotus position! It’s more for new mum’s and dad’s and how baby will react to your energy. So if you’re anxious, worried, frustrated or just plain exhausted your baby will feel this and will react, generally with some unsettled howling and caterwauling! We’re all human and are going to have these emotions – but never fear baby meditation is here to show you how to focus on staying calm and centred during stressful situations.

Toddlers

It’s never too early to start practicing – in fact the earlier the better so it becomes just as much a daily routine as cleaning your teeth!

At this age (2-3) we start to develop focus through some fun activities that draw their awareness to their breath, which in turn helps with relaxation. A very powerful tool for bedtime!

Young Children

A lovely age for us parents but for the children it’s quite a tough time! This is when life starts to take on big changes like the thought of or actually leaving mum and going to school.

Children experience the same emotions as adults they just don’t understand them which is very ungrounding and can result in anger, upset, hyperactivity or illness.

The in-be-teenies

A broad age range with varying levels of maturity and understanding. A time of physical development, emotional and thought development in relation to others – friends, family, peer groups, sports, hobbies, careers, the world!
To top it all, they want to be in control, get it right and be right.

There is a definite need to off load worries and release the need for control and find some peace and calm.

The teens

Funny, I remember the good times of my teens, my mum however has polar opposite memories! What a tough time for everyone involved.

Recipe for Child to Adult Transition Cake

Ingredients:
Add a huge amount of hormones
Add exam stress
Add a mixed bag of sexuality
Add a dose of self image
Stick in a case of bullying
Add enough over stimulation to alter the brains electrical activity

Method:
Make sure there are no traces of self esteem left. Leave the mixture to make decisions that will determine their place and purpose in the world.

Turn the heat up and apply vast amounts of pressure. Decorate with severe anxiety, depression, eating disorders, self harm, sex, drugs and alcohol.

No thanks to a slice of that cake!
The answer is focus and relaxation. Practicing meditation helps to stay grounded and calm, to let go. In a short time they feel better within themselves as they learn to listen and calm themselves through these challenging times.

I have a teenage daughter. Meditating myself has helped our relationship drastically. I have stopped blaming her – as if she chose to go through these emotions – and started showing compassion. After all, we’ve all been there. Her behaviours now mirror mine.

ADHD

A common behavioural disorder that affects approximately 10% of school age children, particularly boys. All young children can act without thinking, be hyperactive and have trouble focusing and attending to detail – the difference with ADHD is that the symptoms are present over a longer period of time and can impair a child’s ability to function socially, academically and at home.

Through meditation a child’s energy can become more grounded helping to feel more balance and calm, which in turn helps with focus, the ability to cope with frustrations and sleep.

As family members you are face with special challenges – it’s important for you to find some peace and develop your own sense of calm – beneficial during the most trying times.
