When we teach mindfulness to kids, we equip them with tools to build self-esteem, manage stress, and skillfully approach challenges. 

Studies show that the benefits of mindfulness for kids may include:

1. Increased focus, attention, self-control, classroom participation, compassion.
2. Improved academic performance, ability to resolve conflict, overall well-being.
3. Decreased levels of stress, depression, anxiety, disruptive behavior.  - mindful.org
