Dad to the Rescue:a kid’s bedtime, nap time story and relaxation

Today’s Story

Owen is inspired and begins to write a story but gets stuck. Fortunately, it’s Dad to the rescue! He helps Owen learn the importance of taking a break to feel refreshed.

Narrator: Male
Dad to the Rescue Story Excerpt:

“How’s it going?” his dad said.
“I’m stuck. I can’t figure out how to start the story.”  Owen said, feeling frustrated.
“You’ve been working pretty hard at this, I think maybe you should take a break.”  Owen’s dad suggested.
“That’s OK, dad. I can do this. I don’t need a break.” Owen said.
“Owen, a break isn’t quitting, it is giving yourself the option to find new ideas by doing something completely different. I take breaks all the time when I am stuck. Then when I come back, I have a fresh new idea. What would you like to do for a break?” his dad asked.
“It looks pretty nice outside. Maybe I’ll play for a bit.” Owen said with a sigh. He still wanted to finish his story.

Today’s Meditation:

Relax in the grass as you imagine sunlight warming you from head to toe.

A Dancing Deer: a kid’s bedtime, nap time story and relaxation

A Dancing Deer: a kid’s bedtime, nap time story and relaxation

Meet Deena, a dancing deer, as she leaps across the meadow. She discovers fresh water to drink and flowers to nibble in her dance through the swaying grass.

The little deer carefully stepped out into the field, watching everything around her.  The green grasses gently rippled with the soft breeze, creating a path to follow.  As Deena began to follow the path, she saw delicate little purple flowers tucked in among the grasses.  They shyly smiled at her, and then disappeared into the grass again as she wandered by. The little deer smiled and walked out a little further into the meadow.  She saw daisies waving and smiling in the warm light, encouraging Deena to join them.  The little deer closed her eyes for a moment and enjoyed the warmth of the sun on her fur.  She sighed, opened her eyes and walked even further into the meadow.
