Many psychologist today say that while “not all kids will be able to do meditation,” she found that “many kids can learn meditative breathing techniques that will help them regulate and not lose control.”
There are elements of meditation that apply directly to the type of frustration that very young children are inclined to feel. “From 2 to 6, children undergo many changes and have little control over their environments,” says Dr. Jennifer L. Hartstein, a child and family psychologist. “Sometimes, their problematic behaviours are directly linked to that.”
Meditation is proven to provide great physical and emotional benefits and as a parent you would want your child to habitually adopt this as a part of their lifestyle from the earliest age possible. Meditating with them or around them can make this happen. Meditating together also helps strengthen the bond you share with your child.
