Social stories are a wonderful way for children to explore learning and mindfulness. Children love to tell stories, role-play stories and teach others what they learn from stories. Research supports that mindful meditation calms the brain, inspires creativity and enhances cognitive and social-emotional skills. The reflections in The Magic Box incorporate simple relaxation exercises and visualizations designed to improve children's self-esteem and confidence and reduce stress and anxiety. Practiced regularly, these exercises can have a profound effect on children's mental, emotional and physical wellbeing.
