Tips to support your child’s wellbeing during COVID-19

Tips to support your child’s wellbeing during COVID-19

Whatever you are feeling at the moment, your child is feeling too. They feel scared, vulnerable, uncertain of what the future holds, not knowing when they’ll go back to school or see their friends again. They also sense all of your anxiety. None of us have ever experienced anything like this before. Of course, your little one’s behaviour is going to change, and unfortunately it won’t be for the better. They may have more meltdowns or tantrums, they may get angry and fight you on everything, they may become really anxious or wake in the night with nightmares, or not be able to get to sleep at all. This is all normal.

Why Routines Are Important for Children

Why Routines Are Important for Children

Not everyone likes routines, some parents find them too structured, but personally, I’m a HUGE fan!

1 in 5 Australians are affected by mental illness, with many of these people not wanting or feeling able to seek help due to the stigma & discrimination that is associated with it. Since it is World Mental Health Day we reached out to our amazing community to see if there was anyone who could help us shed some light on mental illness & put it into perspective for those who aren't aware of the daily struggles some people live with.
