As a new teacher Kailey Leftko was grateful to find strategies for mindfulness, stress-relief, and emotional regulation for herself. And she quickly realized her students could benefit from them too.
But it turns out that the methods for teaching mindfulness practices to children is not the same as for adults. Over a period of trial and error Kailey was able to find the best ways to bring these strategies to kids.
Today on the podcast she is sharing tips for how to begin bringing mindfulness and other techniques for emotional-regulation into your child’s life.
