Learning to relax is a valuable life skill that can be acquired in childhood. Relaxation helps children improve their ability to cope with strong emotions, to respond positively to challenge and to maintain a natural, harmonious state. Children gain self-confidence, body awareness and healthy coping mechanisms that will stand them in good stead.
As well as clear directions for stretching, loosening, breathing and visualising exercises, Relaxation for Children includes notes for parents, 21 masters for overhead transparencies, a relaxation workbook for the child and suggestions for suitable music. While written for teachers to use in classrooms, parents can also use Relaxation for Children.
