Does your child have trouble controlling his or her temper and get in trouble in school often? Does your child experience a lot of stress and need help learning coping skills? Does your child have trouble making and keeping friends? Learning the skill of mindfulness can help kids respond to situations appropriately, instead of reacting or "exploding." Although mindfulness classes are helpful for kids to find success in many areas of their lives, they should not be considered or substituted for therapy.
Mindfulness is paying attention and being present in the moment which can help kids have control over their emotions. The use of literature sets Free to Be Mindful classes apart from any other program as it helps them connect to real life situations. Each class includes aspects of gratitude, breathwork, literature, discussion and reflection.
As a former teacher, school counselor, and mom, I understand the struggles your child may face, in addition to understanding the skills necessary for them to find success at school and at home. I welcome you to visit my website or call me to learn more about Free to Be [non-therapeutic] mindfulness classes for kids!

Mindfulness Class for Kids

Mindfulness is paying attention and being present in the moment which can help kids appropriately respond to a triggering event, instead of "exploding." Mindfulness classes are beneficial to children needing help with emotion regulation, social skills, anger management, and problem-solving. Each class uses literature, discussion and reflection to help children with gratitude and connecting with their breath. While mindfulness classes may help children learn skills to improve interactions in social and academic settings, classes should not be considered or substituted for therapy.
