Children’s Mental Health

We are all coaches, but, I would imagine that some of us are also parents.

I don’t know about you, but, as a Mam, I constantly worry about the effects of Covid 19 on my kids. On the positive side, I think this experience will make them extremely resilient, adaptable and capable of facing future challenges head on.

However, I also worry about the long term impacts of not seeing their friends, playing sport and enjoying a normal life. To be honest, I don’t let my mind think about it for too long as I find it a bit overwhelming.

I felt I needed to do something.

So, I recently started a Children’s Mindfulness Course to understand how to practice mindfulness with my own children and, also, to potentially help other parents to practice mindfulness with their own children. For me, this is one small way I can try to help my kids, ‘checking-in’ on their mental health in a calm and relaxed way.
