In my previous blog I spoke about how creativity can be a selfcare tool. This is a continuation of that focusing on how creativity can support children in their mental health, resilience, and life in general.
Mindful practice is an amazing thing to teach our children, it can help them to regulate their emotions and have positive social interactions. With many children anxious about returning to school after a long lockdown, support in these areas is more important than ever.
In support of Children's mental health week 2021 this weeks post focus' on ways to support and develop mindfulness for children, these activities are adaptable for adults. With 50% of mental health issues established by age 14 supporting children to manage emotions is essential at any time not just during lockdown.
