In our fast paced modern world, kids are exposed to the overuse of technology and the adoption of multitasking. Poor attention has been associated with impaired learning, memory, emotional development and empathy.

Even before COVID-19 hit, the rates of poor mental health, stress, poor self-esteem and ADHD among children and adolescents were on the rise. With all the changes in routines and day to day uncertainty, kids of all ages need grounding and centring.

To address these issues and bring some calmness back into their lives, we need to address the root problems. Kids need tools to cope with everyday life and the changes and challenges that lie ahead. This is where mindfulness comes in. Now, more than ever, children need to develop skills they need to cope in our modern world including learning to adapt, manage attention in different environments, develop skills in stress management, compassion and resilience.

Skills learnt in childhood and adolescents will be valuable tools in your child's toolkit for life. Give your child the grounding they need to succeed in life, develop more meaningful relationships and cope better when stress and anxiety appear.

Panda Kids Mindfulness Programs can be conducted for small or large groups, or private sessions. The program is suitable for kids from 4-18 years of age. Each program runs for 8 weeks. The program is conducted for different age groups, Infants, Primary and High School. The program for 4-6 year olds runs for 5 weeks. The programs for 7-18 year olds runs for 8 weeks.

Does your child struggle with:
  • Anxiety and tension?

  • Focusing on school work?

  • Ability to learn?

  • Controlling their emotions?

  • A positive self image?

  • Building or maintaining friendships?

  • Sleeping - falling asleep or staying asleep?

"Because of what we now know about the benefits of mindfulness, it would be irresponsible to allow a human being to come to adulthood without at least making it available to them to learn how to tune their own instruments, so they can play them under sometimes very challenging situations; that instrument would be the body, the heart, the mind, relationality with others and nature, where you no longer see yourself as the centre of the universe"
- John Kabat-Zinn
