A very big Happy New Year to all of you! Our team at The mind would like to wish you all the best for the new year ahead!
And with a new year, comes a new year at school! For some of our kids, its another year in the same school. For others, it's that big transition from primary to secondary school. And for others still, it's their very first day in school!
Whilst a lot of our kids would be excited to head back to school, it's worth remembering that even at their tender age, those little humans can experience stress as well. They may not always exhibit it in the same way that us bigger humans (or adults) do, but they definitely experience stress for themselves.
The good people at Psychcentral.com has written up a fantastic 6 step way of helping our kids deal with stress positively. Stress is something that will always be there, so instead of fighting it like we so often do, try helping your kid understand stress and how to turn it into their advantage!
So head on over to Psychcentral.com to read their article on "6 Ways to Give Kids a Stress Advantage" and give your little human that stress buster they may need!
