Teaching Our Children to Help Themselves Be Happy Practical, timely, relevant, and inspiring, 10 Mindful Minutes is Goldie Hawn's gift to parents who want to help their children learn better and live happier lives. Inspired by the revolutionary MindUP program (developed under the auspices of the Hawn Foundation), the book offers easy-to-grasp insights from current behavioral, psychological, and neurological studies to show how our thoughts, emotions, and actions--including our ability to focus, manage stress, and learn--are all exquisitely interconnected. Hawn presents simple and practial ways to develop mindfulness in children and parents alike, and shares her own heartfelt experiences with the challenges and joys of parenting.

A good read with lots of useful and practical tips as well as entertaining anecdotes especially if your kids are still young - aged 5-10 is probably ideal, but a bit young for my teenaged children.
