A friendly, encouraging voice helps kids release stress and excess energy with easy to use collection of guided imagery and relaxation techniques. Meditations for Kids doesn't have a lot of bells and whistles, but it has a colorful and easy to use interface. And, there are some great, kid-friendly guided meditations. Themes are right on for kids, from conquering a fear of the dark to imagining a tranquil afternoon in a tree house, or a fun day at the beach. There's even one to help fidgety kids tone down their urge to be moving all the time. Sometimes, kids are asked to get up and stretch, purr like a cat, or practice deep breathing. But, most of the instructions involve guiding kids through a imagination journey that takes them to a happy place or allows them to let they anxiety or worries float away like a balloon. Not all kids will connect with this approach, or will be able to calm down and follow the narrator. But, for $.99 it may be worth a try!

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.
