“The Mindful Child” by Susan Kaiser Greenland

Susan Kaiser Greenland left a successful law practice behind to create a program called InnerKids, which is affiliated with the Mindful Awareness Research Center at UCLA, teaching children mindfulness practices. Based on this program, she wrote the book “The Mindful Child: How to Help Your Kid Manage Stress and Become Happier, Kinder and More Compassionate.”

The Mindful Child offers skills for children four to 18 years old, and includes age-appropriate exercises, songs, games and fables that the author developed to help build kids’ inner and outer awareness and attention. This can positively affect their academic performance, and social and emotional skills, such as making friends, being compassionate and kind to others and playing sports.

The book also provides tools to manage stress and overcome challenges such as insomnia, overeating, ADHD, hyper-perfectionism, anxiety and chronic pain.
