Acorns to Great Oaks
Meditations for Children
Hardcover ISBN: 1844097218
Acorns to Great Oaks ? Meditations for Children helps children to become and stay aware of the world around them, aware of their own fabulousness, aware of energy, aware of their thoughts and feelings influencing their lives and that of others, aware of their connection with this beautiful planet we live on, and aware of how they can change anything for the better, easily and quickly, in order to create trust, strength and happiness. We are creatures of habit. If we can pick up 'bad' habits (stress, anger), we can also be taught good habits (relaxation, trust, conscious breathing, forgiveness, peace?). We need to teach children how to manage their own behavior instead of having others manage it for them. Meditation and being aware is coming to a place within your heart and mind where you feel happy and trusting so you can feel very good again, in and after any situation, wherever you are and as quickly as possible. Making specific pictures in the mind helps with this. It teaches children power and control over how they feel, what's happening and where they want to be in life! Acorns to Great Oaks ? Meditations for Children contains 22 short meditations to help children on their way, so they can then easily apply 'coping mechanisms' into real life. An Audio-CD with the meditations from this book is also available (978-1-84409-727-2).
365 Devotions for Kids and Families
Paperback ISBN: 0842365508
Sticky Situations is a devotional book for families with children ages 8 to 12 that offers short readings for each day of the year. Each reading begins with a kid who is facing a moral dilemma and ends with multiple-choice solutions for the family to discuss. Often there is more than one acceptable course of action to take. Parents will find tips in the back of the book that interpret the various choices made by the children and offer follow-up questions for further discussion on each topic. Scripture references are provided to give biblical insight into each situation. Sticky Situations is a great discussion starter that will give parents the chance to share their own values with their children.
