Calm and Compassionate Children by Susan Usha Dermond

Ten Speed Press recently sent along a press release on Susan Usha Dermond’s Calm and Compassionate Children, A Handbook. After reading the press release, I thought others might find it interesting as well.

The summary from the Ten Speed Presss Website states:

“Building on such inherent qualities as openheartedness and trust, parents and teachers can help children develop empathy and integrity as they grow and mature. From nature activities to conscious quiet time to tips on daily routines, CALM AND COMPASSIONATE CHILDREN provides practical guidance to help grown-ups model behavior and suggests dozens of activities to foster children’s joy, wonder, kindness, and love.

  • A parents’ and teachers’ guide to developing children’s concentration, self-discipline, and compassion, as well as heartfelt qualities like openness and enthusiasm.
  • Includes more than 90 techniques and exercises drawn from the author’s experiences as a teacher and director of the Living Wisdom School, a nonprofit elementary school that emphasizes nonsectarian spiritual principles and practical skills for living.
  • Recommends books, music, games, and other resources to help grown-ups nurture calm and compassionate kids.”
