Children are rewarding, stimulating and fun, but looking after them can be stressful and challenging! The Nurturing Programme (sometimes call the Parenting Puzzle) helps deal with those challenges so that you can have a calmer, happier life.
Parent Resources and Library:
A child and adolescent psychiatrist at Priory Group - Dr Hayley van Zwanenberg - has recently provided valuable advice for parents on how to talk to their child about anxiety. They have produced an infographic using this information, which parents can use when explaining to their child why anxiety can happen, when it can happen and what they can do if they do become anxious.
Childline has a new website for children under 12.
You’ll find helpful info on things like: bullying, family, friends, feelings, school, abuse and staying safe.
