Child using app

In simple terms, mindfulness is staying in the present moment here and now. It suggests a state of mind which is free from thoughts about the past and future. You intentionally try to become aware of your surroundings to experience everything non-judgementally.

Now you may think that why children need mindfulness and they are too young to explore it. However, today’s children are going through more academic and life stress than we did at their age. Mindfulness can help them to manage their emotions better and build focus, resilience and self-control.

One of the best ways to introduce your children to this concept is through a mindfulness app. Here are some reasons why you should use such an app for your children:

Interactive Games and Activities

A mindfulness app has kid-friendly games and activities to boost their mental health. Your children can engage in these games and activities in a playful manner. It also sends them self-esteem and confidence-building tips.

Guided Meditation and Relaxation Techniques

Whenever your children feel any negative situation or experience, they can try guided meditations or relaxation techniques recommended by the app. These techniques will instantly uplift their mood and deal with their emotions maturely.

Journaling Prompts

Journaling is a technique to express your thoughts and feelings through writing. It can help your children to pour all the clutter in their minds on paper and gain better control of their emotions. The mindfulness app gives journaling prompts which act as clues for your children to write down what they feel.

Personalised Mental Well-Being Plan

If you need customised mental well-being support, the app can provide you with a plan recommended by mental health professionals. You can even consult the experts if required.

Mood Tracker

The app has a mood tracker which can help to monitor your children’s anxiety, depression or any other emotional state. You can understand them better and extend support accordingly.

Information, Updates and Feedback

The app sends articles, videos, updates and feedback to parents so that they can help their children manage their mental well-being.

A mindfulness app is a great way for your children’s optimal mental, emotional and physical development. Would you use one for your kids? Why or why not- do share your thoughts here.

Here are some sample reviews from parents, to help you to share your own experiences:

Best classes for mathematics in Erandwane/Kothrud area. Limited kids per batch and give personal attention. We had a very good experience. My daughter is happy with teaching by ***** teacher.

Very engaging and fun filled sessions for the kids .My 8 year old throughly enjoyed all the sessions. Kids get a platform to express their views on various topics. Suggestion is to make this workshop extended from 1 month to 2 months or more.

My child has made excellent growth. The teacher gives attention to every child adequately and my child is very eager to attend the classes. And the teacher also has excellent skills in art.

We have seen ***** school growing from a pretty new school to a developed school in last four years. They focus lot on academics, extra curricular  actives and lot more.  They embed a lot of fun activities with academics which makes kids picks the basics as well as advance topics pretty well.  Teachers are attentive and they provide a very elaborated feedback about the child on quarterly basis. In short it's fairly a good option for kids for their overall growth.

Highly mismanaged branch of *****. Poor planning. No proper communication with parents. Teacher retention is very low. Good teachers gets transferred to other centres. In past 3-4 years 3 principal changed. Everything they do is for name sake. Workshops/ seminars are more of a sales  pitches. 10% return of value for your money.
