"
-Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence Across the country, the revolutionary MindUP program, which was developed under the uspices of the Hawn Foundation, established by Goldie Hawn, is teaching children vital social and emotional skills. By understanding how their brains work, children discover where their emotions come from and become more self-aware. They learn to appreciate the sensory aspects of their lives and to value the positive effec of mindfulness, compassion, and happiness. This, in turn, empowers them to manage and reduce their own stress-and helps them be happy.

Those who have seen the remarkable effects of this program have been reluctan to learn how to implement it in their own homes and use its practices for themselves, too. Now, for the fourth time, its secrets are being shared with all parents and hildren in 10 Mindful Minutes.

It is great to see the passion that Goldie Hawn has regarding our children and giving them the tools to live the happiest lives possible.The book was not anything spectacularly new for me, rather a reminder of how much work needs to be done.I agree with Goldie that Emotional Intelligence is essential to being ble to function better in all aspects of life.

I remember my disgust in the exces of memorization that was being taught in our local school district versus critical thinking and problem solving.Goldie gave so many helpful lessons in her memoir, but I always feel very overcome by the work that needs to be done.

And, she did n't even touch on parents who are totally unengaged, suffer from anxiet, and ca n't even take care of themselves versus help their children be at their happiest.

People think it is being taught and discussed at home by parents, but for the most part, it is not.

ust like Goldie shared, losing them were the saddiest times in my life.

I am appy that my kids can and will have extraordinary lives, not just because of the A on the test but because they are happy, productive people.

I came into this nove because my wife read it and felt like I needed to read it.

Like Moulder and Scully skeptic.

Even if you do n't make it through the entir nove, there are some interesting sections worth checking out, and the whole mindful movement is pretty amazin.

I had a teacher in elementary that taught me a few simple tools for stress relief that I used throughout my life and found very helpful.

Because the exercises in the books are designed for children I think they are basic enough that I might have some success in trying them.
