These serene audio scenes can bring calm to stressed minds and bodies, but parents with younger kids may want to set rules for in-app purchases first. 5 Minute Escapes - Guided meditation & relaxation includes a variety of options for calming scenes, from a Greek fishing village on a summer morning to the sound of rain and thunder from a distant storm. The soothing sound effects, music, and calming voice lead the listener through guided meditations of varying lengths. Since it's not created with kids in mind, there's no instruction or parent gate on purchases. Before using with younger kids, parents may want to set rules and introduce meditation first, so kids know what they're doing and why. Also, if using meditation around bedtime is helpful but you don't want devices in the bedroom, kids can use the app in a common space before hitting the sack.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
