Are you a parent and are noticing that your child can benefit from developing his/her ability to focus?
Research has shown that meditation increases a child's
ability to concentrate and sustain it, even doing the most boring tasks.
The University of Pennsylvania showed that students meditating only a
few minutes a day can expect increasing levels of focus and performance. So you see, just a few minutes can make a difference!
I suggest you commit to a regular meditation practice yourself. Learn
to meditate yourself if that is where you can start. From this place you
can support, inspire and encourage your child to pick up this amazing
thing to do! You are then able to teach your child yourself, or find a
place where they instruct meditation specifically to children.
There is a way to bring meditation to children that is fun and easy. And
children take it to so easily as they are still so open and can move
quickly. I wrote an article about some ideas on how to support your
child to start meditating. Meditation for concentration is easy to learn.
