Is Meditation Good for Kids?

When I was in second grade, my desk was in the corner of the room facing the “penguin wall.” We called it my “office.” I was a little ball of energy and in school I didn’t know what to do with myself as I tried to sit still and focus when all I wanted to do was play with all my friends around. I thrived in activities that allowed me to express myself but was a constant distraction to everyone …
