Mindfulness is a key tool that can be used to create the gentle and accepting kind of awareness that bonds a parent and child together. This beautiful book, with affirmations for both adults and kids, will bring peace and colour into your family home. Enjoy!

Mindfulness is increasingly referred to as the foundation of a flourishing life. Whilst children naturally appear to be more mindful than adults, there are times when a mindful activity for children can provide a breathing space for both children and parents. There's also increasing scientific support for the use of mindfulness highlighting the significant benefits for both children and adults. Kylie has created a beautiful mindful colouring book with positive affirmations that will encourage children and adults to be more mindful and optimistic and experience an increased sense of calm, which is now more than ever required in our busy lives. My hope is that it will also help families to flourish.

Kylie's Mindful Affirmations Colouring book offers something unique to the known psychological benefits of colouring in, adding the powerful adjunct of affirmations, or positive self talk. My work with children and adolescents has shown how this simple exercise of engaging with a parent/carer in an activity of mindfulness can be hugely beneficial in developing the life skill of emotional regulation. Treat your child, and yourself, to the wonder of mindfulness and the power of positive self talk with this inspirational resource.

I love the book that Kylie has created! As a developmental psychologist, I can't emphasise enough the importance of good role-modeling. Children typically don't listen to what we say but watch what we do. How wonderful when we can provide them with tools to help them calm their minds, dealing with stress, to become aware of their inner world and connect with their emotions. Practising mindfulness is a skill that children can easily learn, just like learning how to ride a bike. With these wonderful colouring pages, practising mindfulness together is fun!

A young person with a strong and powerful self-concept is even more important today than it has ever been before. Building the feelings of self worth whilst having fun colouring and repeating affirmations is a unique strategy for parents and child to bond and further develop attachment that is vital for building resilience, risk taking and future success. The mindfulness technique of quietly creating a beautiful visual while constantly seeing the words that have deep meaning enable a calmness in the young person and adult that is so necessary in the busy day to day life. This is just as important for the adult as it is for the child.
As a grandma and great aunty it will be wonderful to have another strategy to have meaningful time with each special young person in a calm relaxed atmosphere. I am grateful to Kylie for developing a resource that I can use to build that important bond with the important young people in my life.
