Anyone have any thoughts about whether hypnosis or some sort of guided meditation would help a child as young as eight? My daughter suffers from a lot of anxiety and has a hard time calming her thoughts during daytime activities, but particularly struggles at night. She's a very mature 8 and has always been described as an old soul in a young body. She has a hard time being "present" in the moment and enjoying where she is and what she's experiencing without thinking 10 steps ahead. We've tried books on CD at night but that doesn't seem to really calm her mental chatter. She reads, but will often stay up past ALL of the family which affects her energy the next day.
