Hope you are all staying well and have had a good weekend (I know the weekdays and weekends all roll into one!)
All children under the age of 18 have the right to…
express their views, feelings and wishes in all matters affecting them, and to have their views considered and taken seriously.
This is really important at this stressful time. We, as adults, are finding the whole unknown situation tough and stressful. For our children, who may not fully understand what is going on, who miss their routine, their friends and ‘normal lives’ this time is exceptionally hard. It is important for them to know that it is ok to struggle, it is ok to ask for help, it is ok to express how they feel and have someone listen to them.
Take 10 minutes today to have a conversation with your child, ask them “are you ok?” and “how are you feeling?” Let them be heard.
Here are some good activities to do related to this right. Fun and educational! There is even a guided meditation on there.
If the PowerPoint says too large, you can still click the link on the blog post and it will open.
Keep smiling, stay safe and remember staff are here for you all!
