A Baltimore school is now taking a really innovative approach to dealing with kids that act up in class or exhibit other disruptive behaviors -- they're sending them to Mindful Moment Room. Decorated with soothing coloring and restful furnishings and art, this room provides a place for kids to take it down a notch. They encourage breathing and meditation exercises and offer yoga -- a far cry from the practice of writing lines when I was a kid!
The results have been nothing short of incredible. Tempers are cooled. Tantrums are stopped in their tracks. The school has not had a single suspension since the inception of the program. It just goes to show that even kids can benefit from the practice of mindfulness.
