"By being yourself you put something wonderful in the world that was not there before"
I hope you are okay and keeping yourselves safe, I know it must be tricky keeping everyone in your house happy during these difficult times.
Just some ideas to support you:
If possible try to keep to a routine, it does not have to be strict but routines and consistency help children feel safe and secure. Get them up, encourage them to get dressed in the morning, eat a good breakfast together and get moving. All of these small things will boost their mood. It is good to have those lazy, chilled pyjama days but in the long term it is not good for our mental wellbeing.
Allow each person in the family some space to themselves, that includes mum and dad to recharge and collect their thoughts.
Talk, Talk, Talk. Please talk to friends and family about how you are feeling, this is such a stressful time so do not shut your thoughts, worries and feelings away, it is good to talk!!!!!
Some good You Tube sites to get children moving are:
Joe Wicks – Daily workout
Swiggle while you wiggle
4 activities to do :
1) have an indoor treasure hunt
2) Stay up late and look at the stars
3) Learn a tongue twister
4) Write a letter or draw a picture for your neighbour
