What These Children Have to Say About Anger Is Amazing

Listening to the elementary school kids in this video, you hear something you just don’t expect. These children are unexpectedly articulate about their emotions. You really need to listen to what they have to say, it’s amazing.

They are completely aware of what is going on in their brains when they get angry.

To listen to how they feel when they’re angry and how they react when angry is mind bogging.  It is plain to see that they have a grasp on understanding feelings that most adults don’t.

Just Breathe by Julie Bayer Salzman & Josh Salzman:

Filmmaker Julie Bayer Salzman said: “The inspiration for Just Breathe first came about a little over a year ago when I overheard my then 5-year-old son talking with his friend about how emotions affect different regions of the brain, and how to calm down by taking deep breaths—all things they were beginning to learn in kindergarten at their new school, Citizens of the World Charter School in Mar Vista, California. I was surprised and overjoyed to witness first-hand just how significant social-emotional learning in an elementary school curriculum was on these young minds.”

“The following year, I decided to take a 6-week online course on mindfulness through Mindful Schools, figuring that if my son was learning about this, it only made sense that I should learn too. Within the first week, I felt the positive effects of this practice take root not only on my own being, but in my relationships with others,” she said.

The role of mindfulness in education:

“As a filmmaker, I am always interested in finding a subject worthy of filming, and I felt strongly that mindfulness was a necessary concept to communicate visually. Thankfully, my husband, who happens to be my filmmaking partner, agreed.”

“We made Just Breathe with our son, his classmates, and their family members one Saturday afternoon. The film is entirely unscripted—what the kids say is based purely on their own neuro-scientific understanding of difficult emotions, and how they cope through breathing and meditation. They, in turn, are teaching us all,” she said.

Hopefully, this will be implemented in all schools around the world. Imagine the difference it would make.
