"Focusing and Calming Activities for Children" helps children to build social, emotional and spiritual well-being. Part One covers the theoretical and practical background. It illustrates how the capacity to calm oneself, focus attention and concentrate can help a child build specific skills and abilities and regulate themselves, and demonstrates the importance of play and imagination. It also sets out how to structure the emotional environment. Part Two is made up of games and activities that teach children how to develop these mindfulness and calming skills.
