a racing mind

Hi, I have a 5yr old who has started kindy this year, but is at yr 2 level with her literacy and numeracy. she has always been an avid reader & learner of all things at home, but since starting school she has trouble sleeping at night. She keeps telling me her mind is racing with too much info and thoughts running through it and she can't slow it down. It often ends in tears and me singing her to sleep just to distract her mind (trust me I can't sing)! Has anyone else had this & can u recommend any relaxation techniques please?

Re: a racing mind

Hi Shellly, We had success with some relaxation CD's that incorporated story telling with meditation. Here is a link: http://www.relaxkids.com/UK/Audio_CDs From memory we used "Quiet Spaces" and "Super Heroes"

Re: a racing mind

I did the same- relaxation cd's
as a baby I created a 'shhhhhhhhhh' cd where I played soft music and shhhhhh-ed onto a cd (recorded on my Mac) and burnt to a disc. it was my voice so helped to soothe
massage???
