    May I Be Safe (Handwashing Song)✌️💕

    May I Be Safe (Handwashing Song)✌️💕

    We originally recorded this song in March of 2020. Now, nearly two years later, we still think it's important to wash our hands thoroughly and mindfully, so we're re-releasing this song as a tool for health and kindness inside and out. Whether you're learning it for the first time, or listening again, we hope you enjoy this song.
    What if instead of singing Happy Birthday each time we wash our hands, we sing a song that wishes ourselves and our world safety, health, peace, and kindness.
    We recorded a 20 second hand washing song to sing every time we wash our hands. This song was inspired by the ancient practice of loving kindness or metta meditation. There’s a lot of modern research that says loving kindness is a powerful tool that increases the well-being of both kids and adults.
    Special thanks to Kurt Gunn for the vocals and guitar. Check out Kurt Gunn at http://www.kurtgunn.com/
    And thank you to the children of Aldo Leopold Community School for the chorus.
    Enjoy and please share!
    Today's Affirmations:
    May I be safe
    May I be healthy
    May I be peaceful
    May I be kind
    May all be safe
    May all be healthy
    May all peaceful
    May all be kind

    Best HUG Yet!🤗💕 (Power Episode!)

    Best HUG Yet!🤗💕 (Power Episode!)

    This is a hugging meditation for kids, based on the practice created by Thich Nhat Hanh.
    Science says that kids who are hugged a lot actually grow smarter, bigger, healthier, calmer, and more resilient than kids who are rarely hugged. Pediatricians recommend that all kids get at least 17 hugs a day! We better get hugging right away!
    For this practice you will need a stuffed animal, a pet, a friend, or a family member.
    If you're in the car and don't have any of those things available, don't worry...because you can hug yourself!
    Today's affirmations are based on the way we feel when we get a really good hug:
    I am happy
    I am loved
    I am well protected
    Today is going to be a good day

    Today's episode is all about overcoming fears. In this episode listeners get to meet a special guest. (Spoiler alert...it's our dog Lucy, who had a rough start and once was afraid of pretty much everything!)

    I am braver than my fear

    Daily Pledge for a Positive School Day

    Our Daily Pledge is back!🎉
    We released a similar version of this in 2020 when so many kids were schooling at home. Now one year later, a lot of our listeners are going to school in person. So we're re-releasing the pledge, not just for virtual learners, but for ALL kids, regardless of where they are learning now, to practice right before they go to school.
    The daily pledge is a pledge to ourselves and our families and it's jam packed with powerful words for an incredible, positive day.

MomSlice1 ,

Wonderful family resource right here!

Thank you for creating this amazing toolkit for kids and their families. Actually, this seems like it would do anyone, at any age, a world of good! If you like the idea of developing and honing super powers like bravery, the ability to remain calm or soothe yourself after being unsettled; then you will love listening to this sweet podcast with a great mix of mom

Our family loves this podcast!

This is a fantastic podcast for families to listen to on the car ride to school or transitioning between activities or just to bring calm and positivity to the day. We love how they use animals throughout the podcasts to relate the concepts and affirmations. It’s definitely a staple in our podcast library!

One of our favorites!

Tennessee, age 9, says this podcast “helps us learn, and grow, and feel better.” Stella, age 6, says, “It is cool and I like it.”

We love listening on the way to school in the morning, and on road trips. The affirmations are simple and effective — I’m a substitute teacher, and I’ve used them in the classroom, as well!
