Mastering Mindfulness: Fostering a Mindfulness Culture in Children

Alice A. Robinson

Abstract


With the constant barrage of social media, and the plethora of children’s apps, political correctness and being respectful to one another have become less important in today’s culture, or so it seems.

Teachers, librarians, and childcare providers are trying their best to arrest the slide. Recognizing the problem, many teachers and public librarians are creating mindfulness programs for children. During professional-development workshops, presentations are given on the personal benefits of mindfulness, as well as guidance on how to introduce these activities to students. Follow-up activities include participants registering for online or summer college courses, leading to a mindfulness certificate, or watching TED talks or mindfulness videos, individually or as a group, and discussing important aspects.
