Great read.....

Interesting article from the New York Times about children and mindfulness. It really stresses the idea that a mindful child really begins with a mindful parent. The same is true for teaching mindfulness in schools. You can't begin to expect children to engage in a mindfulness program without their teacher being on board. They are the leaders and set the tone for their classroom. You can't expect to have a class full of mindful learners without having a mindful teacher leading the way. Just the same, an anxious or stressed teacher sets up an anxious stressed out class. Leading by example is the best way to teach anything.
