About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
The author has also given age appropriate activities that parents could do and keep their kids busy and not just use media as a means of entertainment. I liked the part on hanging up and hanging out and the letter of 10 year old Ryan to his mom on hanging up and hanging out; making mealtime fun, simple power of sleep, teaching children to relax, cultivating mindful children, meditating with your kids, tree pose, various books for kids on meditation, creating a special moment with your child each day like telling a funny story.
An easy to read book on parenting and mindfulness.
