Teaching Meditation to Children Summary

Teaching Meditation to Children: A Practical Guide to the Use and Benefits of Meditation by David Fontana

This is a guide to teaching children the health-giving benefits of meditation, covering their needs from school age to late adolescence. It is inspired by recent research that shows that childhood disorders such as hyperactivity, aggression and sleep problems may be helped by meditation. Meditation has long been recognized as a useful tool for developing powers of concentration, aiding relaxation, enhancing self-understanding and general well-being, and promoting personal and spiritual growth. This practical and instructive guide focuses on children, addressing their concerns specifically and thoroughly. Aimed at parents, teachers and other adults who work with young people, it is packed with information and practical exercises which children of all ages should be able to appreciate and learn from. The book also shows how to use meditation for specific medical, psychological and social problems, such as: shyness, anxiety and tension; hyperactivity, aggression and impatience; anti-social behaviour; asthma; insomnia; and depression.
