Episode 39 How Meditation and Mindfulness Supports Children’s Mental Health and Wellbeing with Mayhem to Mindful
Meditation and mindfulness are tools for calming and regulating emotions that help support our children’s mental health and wellbeing. We are becoming increasingly aware that teaching our children preventative proactive health skills can help prepare them for life’s stresses and challenges, and build a more resilient future.
Kasey Hughes is the founder of Mayhem to Mindfulness, and she supports children as a mindfulness facilitator and certified health and wellness coach. Kasey is a mother to 3 boys and they have inspired her to help other kids. She is extremely passionate about the emotional and mental wellbeing of our children and parents and offers child-specific wellness programs to teach kids how to use mindfulness and meditation skills to improve their emotional intelligence.
Children are taught how to fill their cups and give them lifelong skills in managing worries and concerns and how they can tap into sensations of feelings in their bodies to become aware of what they are experiencing. They learn how to accept all different feelings, even the big and uncomfortable emotions to bring stress levels down to be able to think well, manage the effects of emotions, bounce back from setbacks, sleep better and build overall resilience. Emotional intelligence and resilience are superpowers for kids that give them the best chance of having positive mental health outcomes as they grow.
Kasey believes that it’s more important than ever to take steps to improve your children’s mental health. Simple tools like mindful belly breathing through 3 deep breaths can be used at any time to help calm worries or anxiety. Meditation and Mindfulness can calm the brain and build up the prefrontal cortex in children’s brains to become resilient in many different situations. Research shows that this can reduce their potential for anxiety, depression, and other mental health problems.

Do you want to shout less and connect more with your teens and tweens? Do you want to hear how you can have a healthy and harmonious relationship with your teens and tweens whilst parenting from a place aligned with your values? Then listen to this episode with Wendy Bennett who is a mentor for teens, tweens, and their parents and offers online support, courses, and resources to navigate these often challenging years.
Wendy originally created the online Amaze In Mind App to help teenagers. It offers content that can teach them skills to grow, express themselves and feel connected during their tween and teen years. It allows them to get to know themselves better and develop a secure sense of self. Wendy believes that also teaching parents the skills and understanding of the milestones in teenage years can create awareness and empathy for parents to bond and deepen their relationships.
Wendy has developed an online course called the Chaos to Calm Parenting course as well as an online community of support, to share her expertise and experiences as a counsellor and mother. The course can help parents relate to their kids and become aware of what’s driving their interactions and why things might not be going as they wish. Wendy has developed 6 parenting principles that she uses when working with parents and the 4-week program is an introduction to these principles as well as helping parents achieve some quick wins in shouting less and connecting more with their kids.
