I have shown myson about meditation and when I see him getting wound up I have a special area that is his "meditation sanctuary" where he sits on the floor and looks at the wall and we do a few deep breathing exercises. I let him sit there with his wiggles and his grumbling and tell him ahead of time that it is ok for him to wiggle and grumble because he is angry. But he is going to sit there while he is doing all his wiggling and huffing and once he is done with all of that he can have 5 minutes all to himself to do his own deep breathing and meditation. I am trying to teach him the skills to calm himself. We have only just started doing this last month. Now he still complains and wiggles but he is actually starting to do his deep breathing and when he leaves his little "sanctuary" a very different little boy and is generally smiles and in a good mood.
