Here are some great tips for helping your children to make sense of the changing situation that we find ourselves in. I have been in contact with Mental Health Leads throughout Camden who have come together to share and compile a list of tips and links that may be helpful to you and your child/children. I hope you find them helpful! ?

Below are some links that you may find useful when talking to your child:-

The first 3 offer different ways for you to talk to your child about what is happening and how they are feeling.

Talking to young people

As Catholics, prayer offers us a great deal of strength during difficult times. Prayer each day as a family can be enormously comforting. Sometimes a gentle meditation before prayer can help young children to focus their minds in readiness to talk to God.

This is a great link for helping families to focus on healthy habits.

Having a daily routine is a great way to keep your brain focused. It helps to ensure that you get a little bit of everything you need each day to stay healthy and well inside and out!

Here is a great timetable that was sent out by Miss Stopes Robinson. You could use it as a template to make a timetable that works for you and helps you to structure your day. 

Balloon fun: there are endless games to play with a balloon just trying to keep them off the ground or have a go at balloon tennis, you don’t even need bats kitchen utensils are just as good or just your hand.

Popcorn pushups: Put a small bowl of popcorn on the floor. Lower yourself down and stick out your tongue to get a piece of popcorn with each thrust.

Hallway bowling: You can use water bottles( with or without water)  or the inner tubes of the toilet roll and any ball. This can be a great challenge for yourself or as a family activity.
