We do our best when we're relaxed, confident, and capable. Teenagers and children are no different. Practices for Growing Up Mindful offers parents, educators, counselors, and caregivers a series of exercises and meditations for cultivating the skills and attitudes that will empower us-and our children-to handle the increasing stress of modern life in wise and healthy ways. With this audio companion to his new book, Dr. Willard brings us the tools he has found the most effective in his work with children, teens, and parents, and as a leader in training and teaching educators, psychotherapists, and other caregivers.
