New Kids’ Guided Imagery for Concentration, Anger, Grief…

06 May

Hello again.

We ordered three terrific new kids’ titles by Mellisa Dormoy for our summer catalog – her guided imagery to help with grief; another for managing anger; and a third for encouraging focus, concentration (help with ADHD). We’ve been looking for good kid resources on these topics for a very long time now.  These audios arrived at the warehouse sooner than expected, so Cindy asked me to tell you about them now.
And I’m happy to.  My grandkids have been test-driving them, and the grade school set has given Mellisa an enthusiastic thumbs up.

Here are the descriptions in more detail:
Healing the Hurt: Grief Support Meditation is designed for grieving kids and teens, using sound psychological principles  and a lot of wisdom to help them move through the necessary stages of loss and hurt, to healing and integration.  She’s got a great voice and this is well written - a wonderful addition to any kid’s grief recovery tool kit.

Calm & Clarity: Guided Meditations for ADHD, Hyperactive or Busy Kids has two guided meditations, written for a wide range of younger, grade school aged kids, from those who could use a little help with focus and confidence, all the way to those struggling with full blown ADD or ADHD (attention deficit disorder or attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder).  This is well-designed to help with concentration, the channeling of extra energy and transforming negative self-talk into a boost for self-esteem – a savvy, well-delivered narrative. This is a popular title with parents, teachers and kids alike. ADHD Calm and Clarity audio sample

Relaxed & In Control: Guiding My Emotions for Good Self-Control also has two guided meditations by Mellisa, designed to help grade school aged kids with their anger, impulses and big feelings.  The narrative opens up the idea of choices and supports better self-control through channeling and redirecting emotions. This won’t be for every kid – tougher, more street savvy kids may not respond to some of the “nicer” messages – but it will hit the sweet spot of most boys and girls.

So, if you’re a parent, teacher, friend or relative of a kid who can use any of these, now you know where to look.
Take care and be well.
All best,
