Kids Meditation

Description: After I had created the meditations for adults, moms would come and say that their kids noticed a difference in how their mom responded and their kids demanded their own meditation CD. This kids meditation CD is designed for kids who are stressed, pressured, don’t know why they have so much frustration and anger. Moms and kids using this meditation CD together become more peaceful and happier. Kids seem to know when they need to use the meditation and relaxation CD and take it upon themselves to ask to use it or just put in on their iPod. The techniques in this meditation CD for kids are simple and about breath and allowing children to get into a habit of not holding on to issues that arise during the day.
