Deep Breathing better know as belly breathing is a powerful relaxation technique with profound impact. Belly breathing can help children improve concentration, relax muscles and anger, and calm the mind.
“I am a mental health therapist working with children and families. There are many books and resources to teach kids about relaxation and breathing, but few work for me to introduce the concepts to my younger clients – preschoolers and younger elementary school children. (Though it would also be good for older elementary schoolers.) The simplicity of this book is calming in and of itself.”
— T. Jalbert
