SUPPORTING PARENTS HELPFINDER (YOUNG MINDS)
Times are tough for many people right now. Parents find themselves pulled in many different direction and children may be struggling being in the house for so much longer than usual.
You might be feeling a mixture of emotions at the moment - concerns about Covid-19, working from home, children being at home, remote education expectations, along with possible financial worries. These can all add worry, frustration, and anxiety and possibly lead to a stressful household.
Young Minds have created a useful 'Supporting Parents Helpfinder'. By answering six questions, parents can find out how to support their child's mental health during the pandemic (and beyond).
Find the help finder here:
The website also has a lot of useful information and support which you might find helps.
Young Minds have also created a useful poster highlighting ways to give support to children when they have angry feelings or outbursts and may help families start a conversation and talk about each other’s feelings.
As always, we are here to help and support in any way we can so please don't hesitate to get in touch through the school office, or on Dojo.
