P-l-e-a-s-e, can we stay outside for just five more minutes?”

If your child has been waking up before the birds and his homework isn’t getting done, such indicators could point to Spring Fever.

“The good weather, surge of vitamin D, and the sense that school is coming to an end, are all signs that the seasonal transition has hit,” says Susan Verde, kids’ mindfulness and yoga teacher and the author of I Am Yoga (Abrams Young Readers, $14.95). “Kids’ natural desire to move their bodies and get outdoors is put into overdrive.”

While such restlessness can disrupt the daily routine, making it more difficult to keep kids on task, a mindful approach to your youngster’s change in mood and behavior can prove beneficial.
