How Mindful Breathing Gives Kids Courage

Breath of COurage

We are about halfway through the school year and there will be spring concerts and plays to think about. For kids, this can be a formidable time. Getting up in front of an audience can be scary. However, It is important to help children learn this skill. It’s a skill they will use throughout their lives and the sooner they get used to it the better it will be for them.

I was in 4-H all my growing up. They required us to make presentations and learn to lead meetings. My high school teacher said they could always pick out the 4-H kids because they had speaking skills. As a Children’s Minister, I gave many opportunities for the kids to perform and present monologues. Even scripture memory helps with this. I had a child who was so shy that my assistant would take her into the hallway to recite the week’s memory verse. But by her final year in the children’s department, she was participating in a talent contest.

I came across this precious picture book not long ago. And it’s perfect for teaching children to get past their fears. Mindful breathing exercises can not only teach you breath control and how to speak out loud and clearly, it helps calm your nerves. Every teacher and parent should pick up this book.

Embark on a heartwarming journey with Tiger, Chance, and the whimsical Mr. Beanie in the lively neighborhood of Happyville.

As the big day approaches, the duo, overwhelmed by doubts, seeks guidance from their wise friend Mr. Beanie. Discover the transformative power of mindful breathing as Mr. Beanie introduces the magic of calming breaths, turning nerves into confidence.

A delightful tale, “Breath of COurage” not alone entertains but also imparts valuable lessons about anxiety management, stress reduction, and mindfulness for children. Through enchanting storytelling and whimsical illustrations, children learn essential tools for relaxation and mental well-being.
