      Overview

      This book is a roadmap for all adults – not necessarily parents – who want to live a more aware, attentive and adventurous relationship with children and youths, as they rediscover that happiness is not an extra in life but an actual birthright.

      It is a guide that helps us to take care of ourselves in our educational role and then look after the children and adolescents we care about; it teaches us how to rethink what it means to grow up, making happiness the number one educational priority.

      Each of the book’s six sections is enriched by practical suggestions, enabling us to approach mindfulness in a sustainable and welcoming manner. The book then delves into the practices of the heart, exploring qualities such as attention, kindness, acceptance and compassion. They are qualities that everyone possesses, but that mindfulness helps us to nurture in our relationship with children and youths. The last part of the book includes ideas for putting mindfulness into practice at home and in the classroom, with expressive games, guided practice and thematic narratives available both in print and as audio tracks.
