Mental Health and Wellbeing Check-in
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 or angry about
- Ask how they are going, whether they are finding it easy or hard to learn remotely, and if there is anything they’d like your help with.
There is a risk that your child may be bullied online. If you think this happening to them, support is available on how to talk to your child and your school at Bully Stoppers.
