Read by Myla Kabat-Zinn
The audio exercises included with Sitting Still Like a Frog are based on mindfulness-training exercises for adults and developed especially for children and their parents. They form the core of learning to be more mindful at different times throughout the day. You can do the exercises together with your child or children. Some kids like to do the exercises on their own, and many parents love doing the exercises themselves. You can do them sitting on the floor, on a couch or chair, or lying in bed.

Helps kids sleep
by Fairfax Reader
"My daughter is an anxious child. I downloaded this well over a year ago to help her with school anxieties. She uses it every night. My son teased her about it, but one night he was having trouble sleeping and this knocked him out in minutes. Now the whole family goes there when needed. Kids are elementary age. Very useful and soothing."
