My 8 year old son finds it difficult to fall asleep, and loves this audio book at bedtime. It's light, imaginative and the narrator isn't creepy (as some meditation narrators can be). It's also a great length, which is a must for kids who don't drop off to sleep straight away. Of all the meditations we've tried for children, this is the best.
My 8yo would often take a long time to fall asleep. The first time I played this he listened through the whole hour of this audible cd before falling asleep. Now, every night he is asleep before the end of his chosen story, about 15 minutes. This cd is played every night and has become an essential and loved part of his bedtime routine.
"Love The Meditations, Audible Format Only OK"
I purchased this for my kids who are 5 and 8, and they really enjoy it. I can see how it helps them wind down and relax and fall asleep. The music and voice are calm and relaxing. I highly recommend the content for your children.
Things you should consider before downloading the Audible format.
- This is in a book format, so you can't put this in a iTunes playlist with one of the tracks followed by other soothing music.
- The chapters are not labeled, so you can't easily choose the meditation you want. You can't edit the chapter names to fix this.
- A little nit-picky, but the artwork that comes with the download is not what you see on the Audible site, it's a very low resolution picture of an older artwork. The text is illegible. You can't change this.
Overall - great meditations. I wish I had found this earlier. To do it over, I would buy the CD off of Amazon instead.
"Bedtime Routine Staple"
My 4 year old son was struggling to get into a healthy bedtime routine and settle down for the night. Adding Chrisiane Kerr to our nightly routine has changed that. Both my 4 year old a 7 year old request to listen to her when they get tucked in and I don't hear a peep out of them once I hit play.
"Works wonders for my 5 year old boy"
I play this audio for my 5 year old boy as soon as he goes to bed. Before a chapter is half over, he is always sound asleep. Works wonders for my boy.
The author/narrator is from the UK so some of the phrasing and even terms are different than what you would hear in the US and Canada. However in my opinion this is a plus, as the unique voice (to him) has created a positive association that seems to very quickly trigger calm and sleep.
"=) thank you!"
My daughter is 8 an was having trouble at school integrating with the other kids which was effecting her sleep. These programs by Mr Kerr seem to be helping both the sleeping and the school situation because Hollie is more calm & rested & better able to use the info I am sharing with her about boundaries & dealing with other people.
"Out like a light"
I got this for my son (9), who is learning to deal with anxiety. I played it for him tonight and he was very excited and fell right off to sleep without a worry. What a gift for all of us.
"Good for adults, too"
I have been feeling anxious lately, which has made it hard to get to sleep. I thought the sample of Bedtime Meditations sounded fun and interesting, so I decided to give it a go. I was out like a light in no time and didn't wake until morning (usually when I'm anxious and fall asleep, it's hard to stay asleep).
"My daughter loves this"
It really helps her busy mind relax and fall asleep. She has always had trouble falling asleep until now ( shes 7).
"What a great audio for kids"
I listen with my son 5, what a pleasure he just drifts off to sleep.
"Excellent for kids"
A great recording of three different visualizations to help kids relax and sleep. Highley recommended.
"Works like a charm"
We use this for bedtime with my little ones and it works almost every time.
I only joined audible yesterday and this was one of the first two CD's I bought. When I downloaded it, I never thought that it would work this wonderfully with my Kids.
I am a mother of four kids,11 years old girl,9 years old boy ,6 years old boy and 3 months old baby girl.The eldest three are very active and bed time is simply a daily nightmare for me with them.I really feel exhausted by the time I get them to sleep after that much of shouting and screeming when soft talk doesn't work.I have always run out of ideas to get them to sleep and it even got worse when I had to come to UK this year for my further studies because the flat I am living in is too small for them compared to the one we had back home.Changing the environment has made them even more excited about their school, their friends and their activities not to mention the nice city we live in in Scotland to the extent that going to sleep became such a difficult time for both of us.
We usually have fun in every thing we do throughout the day except the bedtime.I feel very upset after having to shout at them to take me seriously about going to bed especially that I know that these memories last for life.Yesterday I came across this CD and decided to give it a try.I have just finished playing it to them and for the first time in years I have had a nice wonderful bedtime with them listening to the CD.They have loved it soo much that they kissed me for it and begged me to make it part of their everyday bedtime rituals.I was so happy that I have decided to write the review right away for the mothers who have the same problem as I used to have.It really works wonders as I equally enjoyed it with them.
"Works well, however... Audible what are you doing?"
Works really well for my 3 year old, especially the last story, gets her really dozy and ready for sleep, BUT, at the end of the bloomin' story, right after the calm music fades away, all you hear is a loud American voice "AUDIBLE HOPES YOU HAVE ENJOYED THIS STORY" which is not what I want right at the end of a relaxation tape. Audible why did you add this? Other than that, it's 5 stars, would recommend.
"Meditation for kids is a miracle worker"
I will rate this one million out of 10. The lady has a soothing English voice and talks directly to your child (+ me, hubby and cats), yes the cats listen as well, and uses language that a child relates to. For example, if you have any worries from school or home then place them on the worry tree, or in the boat and let them drift away etc. My child (8) will regularly ask for this especially if not a 100% well or has had a challenging day at school.. Superb.
"bedtime meditations thats for kids and for you too"
I got this for my little girl who is four to listing to after we have read to her and had her songs but at first i lay beside her and listen with her it was very relaxing and we both fell asleep to it, she doesn't have it every night but she really enjoys it when she does and sometimes i lay with her and enjoy it too so if you are looking for somthing that can help you kids get to sleep this is great and you can also enjoy it too. happy relaxing
It used to take me over 2 hours to go to sleep but I told my friend about it and she said well read this book and it will help you to get to sleep so I tried it and I got bed before the magic began if I could describe it in one word I would say amazing
"excellent my children love this"
my children love this at bedtime its part of our ritual now. they relax very quickly and are sound asleep.
I loved it and I felt asleep halfway through. Its very good for kids that are bad sleepers. 😊☺😴😇
This is an excellent introduction to meditation for children but spoilt by very poor sound quality. Even when downloaded in the format E it is only 64kbps. The tracks have meditation sounds and audio and are not just spoken word, resulting in distractingly poor audio quality. I would pay the extra £2 and buy it in CD format...
"My daughters favourite wind down..."
The meditations are read so beautifully that I also enjoy listening to them with my daughter. A great little audiobook for active children that need a help winding down...
"Play for dog when fireworks are about"
relaxing , calming, soothing
My dog falls asleep to this audio book. she gets very distressed when fireworks are about. the ladys voice is soothing, calming and relaxing for her. I have used for a Grandchild 2 years old and 7 years old as well. They found the stories relaxing , soothing , calming and fell asleep listening to them.
