IMG_1114

ARE YOU A PARENT OR CARER LIVING IN SYDNEY WITH 6-12 YEAR OLD KIDS?


What would it mean to you if your kids could grow up more peaceful, happy, calm, focused, kind, compassionate, resilient, self-aware and self-regulated?

How would you feel if your kids knew the life changing skills, techniques and knowledge required to implement mindfulness into their daily lives within a changing 21st century world? 

 

HOW WE CAN HELP:

Our non-religious program curriculum is designed to equip 6-12 year old kids with the life skills, techniques and knowledge required to calmly, mindfully and non-judgementally deal with their thoughts, feelings and emotions, on a moment to moment basis, at home, at school, with friends and family.

 

WHAT IS MINDFULNESS?

As stated by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn mindfulness is:

  • a daily way of life
  • living life in each present moment
  • observing and acknowledging your thoughts, feelings, actions and moods as they are without any reaction or judgement, knowing they are not permanent and will pass.


No Mindfulness: Stimulus > Reaction

Mindfulness: Stimulus > Mindfulness > Response

Quote – “Between stimulus and response there is space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and freedom.” – Dr. Viktor E. Frankl

WHAT DOES SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH REVEAL ABOUT MINDFULNESS AND MEDITATION?


Why Kids Need Mindfulness Training:

“Regardless of race, education or socio-economic status, an alarming number of children and adolescents are being diagnosed with ADHD, depression, anxiety, obesity, eating disorders, addictions, engaging in cutting and other self-destructive behaviours including suicide.” – Dr. Amy Saltzman

  • 1 in 7 kids has a mental health disorder.

Research shows meditating for just 10 minutes a day is what your kids need to start experiencing the many benefits meditation can bring into their daily lives.



WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF MINDFULNESS & MEDITATION?

Kids can become more:

calm, focused, mindful, grateful, productive, confident, kind, self-regulated, creative, resilient, joyful, happy, responsive & less reactive, respectful, emotionally balanced, peaceful, better able to problem solve and think critically, well rested, compassionate, self-aware, aware of others feelings, empathetic and loved.

WHAT CAN YOU TELL ME ABOUT THE 9 WEEK PROGRAM?

The Calm & Chilled Kids Program is designed for 6-12 year olds. Our vision is to teach, mentor and inspire kids to live authentic and mindful lives in each present moment.

At the completion of the program kids will be equipped to mindfully implement the skills, knowledge and techniques they learn into their own daily life, at school, with friends and in the family home.

Our curriculum is developed by Diane Uzunovska the Founder of Kids are Leaders. She is a Mindful Primary School Educator with 13 years teaching experience. She is passionate about mindfulness and meditation and implements both into her own daily life. Diane loves sharing her knowledge of mindfulness and seeing the benefits it can bring into the lives of kids, their friends and families.

The Calm & Chilled Kids Program is written based on components of scientific research, personal mindful experiences and mindfulness and meditation training.
