Talk with your child about peace.
Peace is feeling quiet inside.
One way we can feel peace inside is to think of the stars and to imagine ourselves to be just like them. They sparkle and shine way up in the sky. We can see them but we cannot hear them. They are so peaceful and so quiet.
Take a few minutes with your child to become like the Peace Stars. Relax your body and sit quietly. Sit so quietly that the little star inside you can shine brightly. It’s a very peaceful and loving star little star, shining its light and bringing peace into this room (this house/family/community/etc.)
Remind your child that we are all Peace Stars. Whenever they want to feel peaceful inside, they can become very still and quiet and remember that they are a Peace Star.
