“Turn up the love” and teach children about self-love, self-esteem and sharing love while helping them to fall asleep in minutes with Gitte Winter Graugaard’s ‘In my Heart’ Children’s Meditations.
About ‘In My Heart’
Bombarded with more subliminal and overt messages than ever before, today’s children are continually wrangling with both real and perceived expectations. Coupled with modern life’s casualties – stressed parents, long school days, over-scheduling, etc. – this torrent of messages and the continuous wrangling with expectations has a significant impact on the mental well-being of children, with more children than ever suffering from anxiety, depression, sadness, and stress.
Difficulty in getting to sleep is among the more obvious signs that a child is experiencing problems. Combining the resulting lack of sleep with continued information overload presents both children and their parents with serious challenges – and research suggests that children consistently missing out on sleep may over time begin to display symptoms like those of ADHD.
Containing four meditations parents can read to/with their children, this book is designed to help parents teach their children the importance of self-love and self-esteem while enabling them to happily drift off into reparative, calming sleep, their hearts filled with love.
Written by Gitte after seeing these meditations’ positive effects – both when trying to get them to go to sleep and throughout the following day – in her own children, this book is a real treasure.
Beautifully written and delightfully illustrated, it is sensitive, mindful and the perfect way for both parents and children to end the day, strengthen their bond with one another and draw comfort from the ‘lessons’ learned throughout daily life.
