Guided Meditation for Kids – FAQs
In this section, I’d like to answer a few common questions about meditation for kids. If your child has never meditated before, I recommend reading through this section before practicing the guided meditation.
How can I help my child to relax?
Guided meditation is an extremely effective way to help kids relax. When kids meditate, they learn core skills that are important for emotional regulation, such as deep breathing. It helps them identify and appropriately respond to internal signals of stress or anxiety before tantrums or outbursts occur.
This free Guided Meditation for Kids features deep breathing paired with visualizing a safe place. It teaches skills that kids can return to whenever they feel stressed or anxious in day-to-day life. It will teach your child to self regulate his or her emotions and react with more calm.
Whenever your child feels stressed throughout the day, you can simply ask him or her to take two deep breaths and visualize their safe place. The more they repeat this guided meditation, the easier it will be for them to carry the skills into school, play, and life.
How do I introduce kids to meditation?
Children are generally very receptive to meditation. They’re naturally curious and eager to try new things.
If your child has never meditated before, I recommend briefly explaining what meditation is in a simple and imaginative way. Get your child excited to give it a try! For tips on how to do this, check out this easy guide.
At what age can you start meditating?
Most kids can begin to meditate between the ages of 3 and 4. If they can identify basic elements of a story, they can practice meditation.
This free Guided Meditation for Kids is best suited for kids between the ages of 3-12, but can be used for different age groups. It’s a quick way to calm your child down, especially before sleep.
How do you meditate as a family?
This short Guided Meditation for Kids is a great activity for parents and kids to do together. It only takes 5 minutes and your child will enjoy having your company, especially the first few times.
The best way to encourage your child to meditate is to practice it yourself! Kids learn by example, so the more you practice meditation in your life, the more you can use it to help your child.
