    Excellent post, which my daughter can certainly relate to… Now please tell me how to reason with a 9 year old that it will be a GOOD thing to meditate? 🙂

      Thanks for asking! You may have been joking, as I know how difficult it is to get 9 year old girls to understand the value of anything other than what they value, but I wanted to respond as I do think there is a way.

      What inspires your daughter? Who inspires her? How does she learn? What motivates her?

      I know when I was a kid if my mom told me anything – I would do the opposite. It never worked for her to tell me to do something ‘because it was good for me’, or ‘because she said so’. I had to almost believe it was my idea / discovery.

      So maybe find one of her idols who does it? Possibly write to the Disney Channel and ask that they have her favorite characters or teen idol start practicing as a way to calm themselves? I believe there ARE ways, we just have to learn how to get in the minds of children in a way that inspires them.

      Good luck! Please let me know if you happen to find any that work!!
