Want to Calm Your Kid Down? Try Meditation

When's the last time you saw your child sitting still for at least 5 minutes without staring at a screen? For most parents, the answer is probably, "never."

In our overstimulated world of electronics and always-on-the-go lifestyle, you're lucky if you can get your kid to sit still and be focused for five seconds. In turn, children are becoming less attentive, showing increased anxiety, less empathy towards their peers and hyperactive tendencies.

Cultivating mindfulness in children can fend off these issues, as well as depression and anxiety—without medication—while building self-confidence and focus. Meditation is the perfect solution.

Start with these five tips to build a meditation practice for your child and yourself.
