We live in a world with frequent distractions that never seem to end. We think that stress and anxiety are adult things, but in fact they also affect children.

A lack of concentration actually distracts us from what really matters: in order to live "perpetually connected" we must first be connected to ourselves. How do we achieve that? Sylvia Comas, the top expert in mindfulness for children and teenagers in Spain, teaches us how to apply this ancient technique that only began to resonate with us three decades ago. This book offers clarification on relaxation techniques for beginners. Emotional development, non-violent communication, and social intelligence.
