Yesterday I went to the “Hope club’ of the American Cancer Society to offer a seminar. I asked Alana Streifert, the coordinator for the children’s programs at the club whether the children who were introduced to the technique were using it (1). She happily replied -
“Yes. They do. Recently I got a call from a mom to ask what was the breathing technique her son learned at the club. When the mom was at the doctor’s office she found her son touching his fingers and doing some breathing. She asked him what he was doing and he explained it to her. So she was curious to know about the technique from me. ” This is a case of the son teaching the technique to his mom!
Alana also said one of the parents who learned the technique was teaching the technique to other children.
This is one more proof that children will benefit from this technique, as it is simple, easy to remember and use and seems to help them calm themselves on their own, with no prompt from the parents. Does it not make sense to teach this technique to every child, like we teach A.B, C, D and 1, 2, 3?
