This is a self-help book. It is an awakening for adults to seek to be present and endeavour to have more fun, find awe in the world around us, and practice relaxation/meditation and kindness. Once adults begin practising this, it gives us the opportunity to pass these practices on to our children. The mental health of our young people is in crisis. As a school principal, I have witnessed first-hand the dramatic increase in medications taken by children for mental health-related issues. My goal is to normalise practices that can build strategies for lifelong positive mental health. If we can start these in primary school our children will be equipped with the tools to work through difficult situations and age positively. Let’s all test the Dalai Lama’s theory: “Teach every 8-year-old child to meditate and we will eliminate violence within one generation.” “Revolutionary as it may sound, teaching children how to pay more attention to their inner world of thoughts and feelings by practicing meditation, self-regulation, and contemplative practices in order to achieve emotional intelligence, enhance greater academic abilities, and change unwanted behaviors through conscious awareness, is the new normal. Our 10-week research project performed with Bond University involving 1,000 children ranging from 4 years old to 12 years old has proven that the majority of children respond positively to simple forms of meditation. Giving our youth, at an early age, the fundamental tools to pay attention better, cope with change, regulate their behaviors and moods, as well as learn and remember, is tantamount to their future. This book provides the necessary insights to open the minds and hearts of parents looking for a new way to gift their children with all they need in an ever-changing world.” Dr Joe Dispenza, New York Times Best Selling Author of You Are the Placebo: Making Your Mind Matter and Becoming Supernatural: How Common People are Doing the Uncommon
