Help For Children & Families
It is estimated conservatively that the rate of depression in young people has doubled during Covid times.
Most reasons are fairly obvious: Disrupted schedules, inconsistent schooling, social isolation, stressed parents, economic hardship arising from lost jobs and reduced income, and so it goes on.
Many teens may have already been struggling with anxiety and stress before COVID, but the challenges of the last two plus years have heightened these issues. Parents are contacting me looking for help with answers, asking what they should be doing, what’s normal, and how they can help their kids navigate this phase and prepare them for what’s to come.
The good news is that there are resources are available for parents, caregivers, and educators that provide both information and skill-building opportunities for kids who are struggling.
There are skills, strategies and processes that are based on clear developmentally appropriate material that aims to help children to build their coping skills in these areas:
Managing intense emotions
These skills and key ideas allow better purpose & include activities that can be practiced in school or at home.
If you are concerned about your kids - Please act quickly to get your kids the help they may need.
The sooner you can help your kids to develop the skills they need to more easily and successfully navigate life - then they can start to use these skills to improve their relationships, learning & coping skills in all areas of their lives.
As you know, the longer anyone continues to repeat patterns of thought based trauma, the more they could become embedded patterns that are hard to shift to healthier life skills and self healing behaviours and patterns.
A gentle, compassionate and caring engagement with professionals who can really assist you and your kids is something that can more quickly help you and your kids to have better long term long term life skills and outcomes!
