A variety of calming guided meditations are easily accessible for both beginners as well as those with more experience. The personalized sequenced series helps users reach deep to learn about meditation, including various techniques and the benefits of establishing a meditation practice. That kind of personalization may help kids focus on a goal and follow a plan for reaching that goal. When following a plan, kids answer a few daily questions which then nicely adjust the program and help make Balance: Meditation & Sleep feel like a personalized meditation coach. On the other hand, for kids who don't want a structured program, Balance: Meditation & Sleep also has individual meditations, including ones that are just a few minutes long for a quick mindfulness check. Some meditations offer a small amount of customization in that kids can choose a time length or whether they prefer to listen to a male or a female voice. And a small collection of sleep meditations may just do the trick to help kids relax enough to drift off. Kids looking for a broad, varied approach to emotional well-being should know that Balance: Meditation & Sleep focuses exclusively on meditation. For kids under 13, caregivers can make an account since the app isn't designed with kids' data privacy protection in mind.

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.
