How To Help Your Child's Mental Health
There is no question that 2020 has been a challenging year for most people. Our ideas of what is considered "normal" and our routines and connections have been thrown out the window as we adapt to a new, more isolated way of life. During these challenging times it is important to focus on mental health and understand how to keep ourselves and our children in a positive mental place.
Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It impacts how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood.
