Our minds are beautifully complicated and brilliant machines. For much of our lives, these machines run efficiently with minimal maintenance. However, just like our other organs, they do require some proper attention every now and then and recognising this at an early age can help as children progress into adulthood.
This is a guide designed to help children become more aware of their emotional needs and examines a range of topics that might give their minds difficulties, for example:
When parents don't seem to understand us
When we are finding it hard to make friends
When we feel angry, anxious or lack confidence
When school feels boring or difficult
We explore a range of common scenarios encountered by children and talk about some of the very best ideas to help deal with them. By offering a sympathetic and supportive framework, Happy, Healthy Minds encourages children to open up, explore their feelings and face the dilemmas of growing up armed with emotional intelligence.
