"Goldie Hawn embodies delight and joy, and 10 Mindful Minutes radiates these. Her book can help any adult-parent, grandparent, teacher-make double use of their moments with the children they love and have a terrific time while helping shape that child's brain for a lifetime of resilience and happiness."
-Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence

Across the country, the revolutionary MindUP program, which was developed under the auspices of the Hawn Foundation, established by Goldie Hawn, is teaching children vital social and emotional skills. By understanding how their brains work, children discover where their emotions come from and become more self-aware. They learn to appreciate the sensory aspects of their lives and to value the positive effects of mindfulness, compassion, and kindness. This, in turn, empowers them to manage and reduce their own stress-and helps them be happy.

Those who have seen the remarkable effects of this program have been eager to learn how to implement it in their own homes and use its practices for themselves, too. Now, for the first time, its secrets are being shared with all parents and children in 10 Mindful Minutes .

Goldie Hawn describes her "mindful" method of raising children in this easy-to-read guidebook. Her concepts are insightful and are interspersed with quotations and references from renowned psychologists, neurologists, and other experts. Recommended reading for all parents.

We would all be better people if we took 10 Mindful minutes. Should be required reading.

Love this book by Goldie Hawn! It will not only benefit parents but it can benefit children and young adults. Practicing these 10 mindful steps/minutes will turn around your life according to Goldie and I'm willing to trust her. Great book!
