Mindfulness for Children (Primary 1 -5) and Parents

 

 

Introduction

Have you ever thought of introducing mindfulness to your child at an early age? If you like your child to cultivate attention and learn to focus better, the Paws b mindfulness course is a good start to train your child’s mind.

Paws b is a primary school version of .b and it is adapted for primary school children (aged 7-11).

At the most basic level, Paws b aims simply to be an awareness raising exercise that provides children with a taste of mindfulness, so that they know about it, and can thus return to it later in life, learning more about it when this is useful to them.

It consists of 6 sessions and each session is carefully tailored to introduce mindfulness to the children in a fun and engaging way, with the blend of neuroscience and applications in daily lives.
