There are many benefits to meditation: spiritual, religious, practical, psychological, emotional, etc. Psychologist and science journalist Daniel Goleman talks through some of them in this video.
In this separate video, Goleman speaks about how meditation can show us how compassion and love may be built-in to us:
I live in a gift economy, so I give all of my writing freely to you. I depend on your good will and generosity so that my family and I may live, and so that I may continue to write, share insights, and build community. If you were inspired by this, I invite you to also give, to participate in "the Gift". It only takes a moment. I express my deepest gratitude to you for your Gift!

We essentially can all be thought of as having ADD in that we all struggle with deficits of attention. Meditation seems a far greater and less risky way to treat this problem, especially in kids, vs. standard biomedical approaches. It’s simple, easily fit into a daily routine, can be used multiple times in a day if needed, etc.
