Here’s a small sampling of what people say about Mindfulness for Children :
* * * * * ”In our family, it was an instant hit with my daughter, aged 6. Brilliant. She asks for it herself, also the waves, especially when going to bed. So thanks a lot for this app.”
* * * * * ”We find it very good and useful. One of Jana’s teachers is planning to use it in class. I put on the sound of the waves the other day. Jana fell asleep very quickly – and so did her mother, that’s how effective it was. “
* * * * * “My son is ten (he’s got ADHD – (ADD) and therefore also suffers from motorical and mental restlessness and hyperactivity) – he has used the app for two months and he is happy with it. It helps him to calm down when he is “speedy” or when he is mentally tired or too stimulated. And we also notice that it both helps with his physical restlessness (hyperactivity) but also can help mentally in guiding his thoughts in one direction instead of having them flying around. So in our family: Both our child and his parents recommend this app. “

Helpful for my 11 year old
Really wanted to teach my 11 year old how to calm his mind at night time and fall asleep a little easier. This is a really helpful app that we've done a few times now and definitely is helping him to switch off his mind. Thumbs up!
Very helpful for calming the mind!
For some children, like my 11-yr-old son, it's hard to not get distracted, to be able to focus easily and to calm the mind when it's time to relax. Meditation is very useful to get these skills as habits. I think this app will help him to get there.
Love this app!
I use this app with my 12 year old who has a hard time falling asleep. It has never failed us as he is asleep within 10 minutes of starting. It brings relaxation to his body and most importantly, his mind.
