There is a lot of research going into the field of meditation and children. The science speaks for itself. Here are some of the benefits of using an app like DreamyKid:
• Studies find that youth benefit from learning mindfulness in terms of improved cognitive outcomes, social-emotional skills, and well being. In turn, such benefits may lead to long-term improvements in life. For example, social skills in kindergarten predict improved education, employment, crime, substance abuse and mental health outcomes in adulthood. (Jones, D. E., Greenberg, M., & Crowley, M. 2015)
• A 2010 pilot study found that the Mindful Schools elementary-grades curriculum reduced depressive symptoms among minority children. Researchers randomized 18 minority children at a summer camp to either mindfulness or health education. Children were ages 8-11, and 64% were from Caribbean and Central American countries. An instructor led ten 15-minute lessons from the Mindful Schools curriculum. The mindfulness group showed significantly more reduction in depressive symptoms than the control group. Anxiety results were in the same direction but not as significant. (Liehr, P., & Diaz, N. 2010)
• Numerous studies show improved attention, including better performance on objective tasks. Tests are showing a dramatic improvement for children with ADD and ADHD, sometimes up to 89%.
• People randomly assigned to mindfulness training are more likely to help someone in need and have greater self-compassion.
• Mindfulness is associated with emotion regulation across a number of studies. Meditation creates changes in the brain that correspond to less reactivity, and better ability to engage in tasks even when emotions are activated.
• Studies find that mindfulness reduces feelings of stress and improves anxiety and distress when placed in a stressful social situation.

Great for pre-sports
My son has seen a definite improvement in his jitters and focus before matches (volleyball and fencing). He uses the rainbow body-scan and the confidence affirmations) for about 10 minutes beforehand. He wants to try the schoolwork mastery meditation next. So far so good! I personally listen to the rain and cicada background sounds when I take naps. It's very relaxing and you can turn off the meditation if you just want the ambient sounds.
Both kids use it a few times a week
My daughter loves the rainbow meditation and my son uses the confidence affirmations before sports matches.
I like to turn off the meditations and sometimes just listen to the meditation music and nature sounds. Don't know why but I fall asleep faster. Highly recommended.
I got this app because the description clearly states that it includes an ADHD program free. Only after installing can you see that you actually have to pay for that program. The description is also rather off putting- describing kids as being "afflicted" with ADHD, and implying that a daily phone app for meditation can replace medication. Will look elsewhere for ADHD mindfulness techniques.
