… for schools and parents

The New York State Education Department has integrated mindfulness into many aspects of its curriculum, including A Comprehensive Guide for Mental Health Education Literacy in Schools, published in July of 2018. This downloadable booklet contains a wealth of information and many resources for parents and children

Mindfulness is a required part of the curriculum for grades K – 8, with some elements integrated in high schools. Parents who wish to encourage mindfulness in their families should obtain the materials being used to teach mindfulness in school. Then, reinforce n reinforce it at home so the whole family learns together.
