Mental Health and Wellbeing

Just as you set aside time for physical exercise, it is important to make time each day to check in on your child’s mental health and wellbeing.

As your child adjusts to their new routine and not being able to see their friends in person, it is important to be understanding of their feelings of frustration, anxiousness and even anger – every child will react differently.

To support your child, use these mental health and wellbeing check ins to:

  • provide an opportunity to talk about how they feel and listen to what they say
  • identify one or two things they could do to address what they are concerned about
  • ask how they are going and if there is anything they’d like your help with.
