ARE YOU STRUGGLING TO DISCIPLINE YOUR CHILD?
You’re not alone! Many parents struggle with their children’s issues related to stress, worry, anxiety, anger, irritation, and more. Disciplining the child using force is futile. Although discipline is essential, it’s just one part of the puzzle. Emotional awareness is the one that is missing.
Being a parent of two kids myself, I know how hard it is. Mindfulness offers a very effective solution by enabling the children to connect with their emotions.
Super Mindful Kids PDF guide helps in fostering calm, relaxation, self-regulation, and social-emotional skills in early child development using different practices of mindfulness. This product contains 34 easy to practice mindfulness activities for kids aged 2 to 10.
Children these days face far greater stress than what we did during our childhood. The pressure to keep up with the fast pace of the world is adversely affecting our children’s personalities.
A child’s inability to regulate emotions can cause serious long-term mental health complications. Not only that, but it also interferes with the child’s ability to perform basic functions, creates feelings of helplessness, guilt, shame, unworthiness, and low confidence. Some of the physical symptoms include sleep problems, lack of energy, lack of interest in daily activities, and sometimes even suicidal thoughts.
Mindfulness is the practice of bringing awareness to the present moment. The running mind usually causes stress, anxiety, and worry. All the troubling thoughts, feelings, and emotions reduce as the mind calms down.
This guide helps the children understand different emotions, how they manifest, how to recognize these emotions as sensations in the body, and how to respond to them.
Mindfulness teaches the children to respond skillfully rather than reacting impulsively to a stressful situation. Learning emotional regulation skills at an early age goes a long way in shaping the overall personality of the child.
Practicing mindfulness activities, the child starts to explore and understand a wide range of emotions, irrespective of personality type, age, or gender. A majority of these exercises involve breathwork. Breath is the life-giving force that flows within the body. Therefore keeping breath as the anchor, we can teach children to better tune in to their senses, emotions, and inner thoughts, by using the power of observation.
All of this may be sounding complicated, but the activities in this guide are fun, easy, and of short duration. They have been appropriately created for children, and most of them have an average span of 3 to 4 minutes. We have extensively researched and come out with many mindful ideas that keep children engaged.
HOW DO KIDS BENEFIT BY PRACTICING MINDFULNESS ACTIVITIES?
Apart from emotional regulation, the other most pressing issues parents face are related to focus and concentration. Living in the digital world, children starting at the age of two years are exposed to various electronic devices like phones and pads. Focus is a rarity these days, what to speak of children when we as adults find it difficult to reduce our screen time.
Screen addiction is a major problem, and small children are the most susceptible. I have experienced this first hand where my children would not eat any meal without devices playing their favorites cartoons. It was a massive challenge for us to rid our children of that unhealthy habit. It took some time, but we were able to do it.
Watching screens for long periods causes the mind to be fuzzy, and hence it gets difficult for the child to focus on activities that require thinking. Once children get addicted to fast dopamine release, it becomes a challenge to make them enjoy simple activities. Also, this also leads to unhealthy behavioral patterns.
By practicing mindfulness activities, the child learns to calm down the mind and be more present. This newfound awareness that comes about through mindfulness helps the child to build focus. And of this can be done in an extremely playful manner. You will see the difference within a couple of days. Your child will be more alert, aware, and active.
We can help our children by teaching them mindful skills that would serve them for the rest of their life. Teaching mindfulness to children has the following benefits:
Creates Self-AwarenessSelf-awareness makes the children aware of their thoughts, feelings, emotions, behaviors, strengths, weaknesses, attitudes, goals, values, mindsets, and challenges.
Builds Emotional ResilienceIt helps in building emotional resilience within children. It enables them to understand and calmly respond to a stressful situation, rather than showing anger and irritation.
Reduces AggressionAn emotionally aware child is less prone to feelings of aggression. It can be a real challenge for some parents to deal with their children’s aggression. Super Mindful Kids Guide has many exercises (like practicing kindness & gratitude) for managing aggression in children.
Reduces Stress & AnxietySuper Mindful Kids PDF contains exercises that help children to manage stress and anxiety and promote relaxation and calm. Breathing exercises in particular are incredibly beneficial.
Improves Mental FocusOne of the greatest perils of modern-day living is distractions. Mindfulness helps the child to develop a strong focus and concentration in various activities such as academics, sports, arts, and so on.
Self-ControlSelf-control developed at an early age shapes the future of your child. Studies show that mindfulness does this by strengthening the regions of the brain that are associated with focus and self-control.
Keeps Them HappyOne of the greatest joys for a parent is to see their children happy. Super Mindful Kids PDF comes with a variety of different activities that keep your child happy and stress-free.
Pretty awesome, Isn’t it? The benefits mentioned above are by no means exhaustive. There are additional benefits that you will slowly discover with time, as your child practices these activities. Children are eager learners, very impressionable, especially up to the age of 10, and therefore, it is important to teach them now.
Children who lack emotional awareness grow up to be troublesome teenagers and adults. These are the ones who are most prone to severe addictions like gambling, smoking, drugs, and alcohol, as they grow up.
Studies have shown that practicing mindfulness; even just a few weeks can bring a variety of social and psychological benefits. It is especially beneficial for children with behavioral issues, sensory perception disorder, ASD, and ADHD.
YOU GET AN EXCELLENT OPPORTUNITY TO BOND WITH YOUR CHILDREN
Have you ever asked yourself how much time do you really spend with your child? While parents are always present physically, but most of them keep busy with their own affairs. Don’t confuse caretaking work like cooking, feeding, or cleaning with bonding.
Real bonding happens when you’re emotionally present with your child. The way you look at them, the way you react to their innocent achievements, the way you shower of compliments, the way you talk to them maintaining eye contact, makes for a quality time.
Children are keen observers and emotional sponges. They absorb every emotion you exhibit. Therefore, when you engage half-heartedly (like when you’re texting on the phone while speaking to them), your child gets to know. Being small and helpless, they don’t complain but do feel the pain. Children naturally operate in theta brainwave – a state that only monks of the highest order achieve after decades of meditation practice.
If you’re looking for divinity, the first place you’ll find it is in your child’s heart.
Super Mindful Kids PDF guide contains activities that will help you improve your relationship with your children. These are beneficial for both parents and children. Although these activities have been specifically designed for children, they work extremely well for adults as well. It gives you a fantastic opportunity to practice mindfulness along with your kids. Now isn’t that amazing?
