Even when we are practicing exercises that require to be still, your child will enjoy doing those.
For a child, being still is hard. We were there once! And now, it is our turn to supervise and hope that they will be calm and still.
When they are asked to sit and meditate, they are taking notice of their breath, thoughts, and the goal of bringing to mind of the day’s ambitions.
