Headspace for Kids

Following a few questions regarding kids content, we thought we'd take this chance to give you a bit of an update on where we are.


We're currently in the process of developing Headspace for Kids, which is something we're really excited about. We very much look forward to sharing that with you as soon as we can. 

 

As you may know, Headspace was designed primarily for adults, but with teenagers also in mind. That said, we've received numerous messages from parents saying that they have been doing Take10 with children as young as 4 years old, and with excellent results.  See Yasmin, aged just 4, pictured above doing her daily Take 10...

 

However, if you have any concerns at all about your child joining in with your Headspace Take10 whilst we continue to develop child-specific content, please first consult your GP or family Physician.

+1, guys. If you need any one for testing purposes, I've got a 6-y-o boy that could use some headspace.

Another vote for HeadSpace for kids!
After discovering mindfulness meditation via J.K. Zinn 2 years ago, I struggled to fet it until discovering HeadSpace about a week ago. I'm halfway through the Take Ten and my life has changed dramatically. All the potential I saw in meditation has been realized.
I have tried several times with variuos guided meditations for kids with my now 9 year old son with lackluster results and I am positive HeadSpace for kids would be the one that hecciuld get. Had not occurred to me to have him do it with me, but I will now.
Can we expect an update on this soon?

I am a teacher and would love to have Headspace for kids to use with my 4th graders! I hope there is an update soon.
