Did you know mental health problems affect around 1 in 10 children & young adults.. It’s time to stand up & speak up. At Usborne we have a couple of mental health books which are brilliant for children age 8+ and young adults. 
________________________________________
This book is one from my set and it includes chapters talking about how our brains work, that it’s ok not to be ok, and not to want a relationship, body confidence, if relationships end (whether it’s a boyfriend/ girlfriend, with a friend or your parents divorce), there is no normal, how good food makes you feel good, what to do if you feel down/ vulnerable and much more. If you would like to know or see a preview of the book let I can send you more. 
________________________________________
The pressure on our younger generation is getting worse and it can be hard to open up - we all know that feeling! These journals are a great way to get your young ens to open up ♥️
________________________________________

Today has been all about CHILDREN IN NEED. 
We’ve loved hearing what all our schools have been doing to raise money, sampling the cakes and seeing all the fancy dresses, both the teachers and children have made a real effort.

At the end of our classes we have been doing our Love and Kindness breath and sending love out to those less fortunate that really need it.❤️💫🌙 #childreninneed2018 #childrensmentalhealth #mindfulness #meditation #pudsey #pudseybear #yogaforchildren #resilience #childrenarethefuture #spreadkindness #spreadlove

If only someone had told me this whilst growing up.. it would of saved me and so many other teenagers alot of sadness, distress and confusion. Being who we are in the current world is becoming more and more difficult. With the increasing pressures surrounding us on social media, there is no wonder our children and teenager's mental wellbeing is the lowest it's ever been. Relax Kids builds self-esteem and confidence. Allowing individuals to find strengths in their uniqueness, increasing their self-belief and self-worth. "You are safe to be who you are" - you absolutely are!! 💜

Today is Children In Need and I know you will all be doing all you can to donate / raise awareness and that's fab 🙂👍 but most of you will not know that it's also the second day of Childrens Grief Awareness Week.

It would be great if you could also take a moment to think of all the children that are missing someone special today.

I've been asking children what happiness means to them, here's one of my favourites from today. What does happiness mean to you?

Number 2 and 3 on here I would say is Lindens and I go-to for calming strategies. This is a great list. And the majority of them involve communicating with your child. Learning your child's language is probably one of the hardest things to learn as a parent. But let me tell you it is life saving.

A huge thank you to the Nuclear Institute - Young Generation Network for inviting our #Mentoring Manager, Nigel to their Annual Dinner Event last night.

Nigel gave a ten-minute talk on what we do to transform the lives of vulnerable children and young people living in #York and how we all need to work together in order to help the next generation thrive.

The event raised an incredible £1,620 for The Island which will make a huge difference to our work. £1,620 will enable us to support one vulnerable child for 54 weeks.

We are truly grateful for all of their support.

If you would like to support The Island, then please get in touch.

Protect your energy. I have been thinking about boundaries and how often we say ‘yes’ when we want to say ‘no’. If you have a tendency to be a ‘people pleaser’ you might often notice yourself feeling run down and drained. Remember to put the oxygen mask on yourself first so you have the reserves to look after others. #mindfulness #selfcompassion

A gentle way to help children become more self aware can be to suggest they notice if the weather affects their mood... 🌫
We are literally in cloud this morning and our heads seem to have reflected this as school bags were forgotten and hectic dashes ensued... 😣 
Now the panic has subsided, time to re-centre with a brief, but welcome, stop to be #present, reflect, learn and accept...

Even though I’d love to go into hibernation and hide under the blanket - the world is still moving as fast as ever - and I have a book launch to prepare for! ⠀
If you happen to be in Amsterdam today (Friday 16th) feel free to drop by in the Scheltema (Rokin 9), and say hello and celebrate the launch of ‘Als Verdriet op bezoek komt’ with me. We are starting at 16.00 pm. All are welcome.⠀
⠀
This was one of the images from an earlier iteration of ‘When Sadness Comes to Call’, that didn’t make it into the book eventually.

Supporting Mental Health starts from BIRTH.

It’s not enough to SAY ‘It’s OK not to be OK’ we need to SHOW children.

It doesn’t make them weak to respond with empathy and compassion to their emotional needs; it makes them stronger.

It shows them they don’t need to be afraid of big emotions, it’s OK to feel them.

Acknowledge stress, respond, offer strategies. PLAY. Limit screen time - it doesn’t give the developing brain what it needs.

Talk to your child about your emotions and how they make your body feel; model coping strategies.

Love them without putting subconscious conditions on them.

I could go on... It is OK to not be OK, demonstrate that to your child with what you do 🌈

"The more risks you allow children to take, the better they learn to take care of themselves...Boys should be allowed to climb tall trees and walk along the tops of high walls and dive into the sea from high rocks... The same with girls”

These are Roald Dahl's words and I agree with him, but what he doesn’t tell you is just how hard it is as a parent to let them go out and do all of these adventurous, scary, independent things by themselves - he doesn’t mention the worry that comes with letting them take risks and the feeling of relief that washes over you when their feet are back firmly on the ground!

Children acting in unloving ways are likely themselves to be feeling unloved, unwanted, incapable, powerless, or hurt. The response those children need isn’t greater control, or bigger punishments, they need understanding, compassion, and support for their growth. Children need us to be bigger, wiser, stronger, kind. .

An activity for reflection of how we are feeling and how much these emotions take up our heart. Here are some different perspectives from the kids at school in different age groups!! It also opens up some conversations that let us talk openly about some of our issues of not sleeping and dealing with sadness/anger. Every emotion is important to feel human! What matters is how we handle it and the support around us. ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜#childrensmentalhealth

Second class of Superhero Adventures with our infant team tonight! Our superhero theme was 'Incredible Me'. We ran fast like Dash and froze still into our invisible force fields like Violet. We created our own superhero names and stretched tall and wide like Elasti girl. We painted an imaginary superhero mask, gloves and cape onto our bodies, and practised our deep breathing (because even superheroes like Mr incredible can get frustrated). We finished the session with a relaxing visualisation where we received our very own invisibility cloak which could take us on any adventures we chose 💥🌈

I had a conversation a while back with a relative. Her daughter was one of the people who bullied me at school. That's right, one of my very own relatives used to bully me! 
Her mum said "...but she's a good girl, married, has her own business, good with her kids... I'm sure she didn't mean it...". I'm not so convinced. 
We need to hold bullies accountable. They need to be aware that their words, their actions can kill. 
In this day and age with social media it is much worse than it has ever been. People say "Just block them... Ignore them... Don't reply..." it's not that simple. Why should the onus be on the victim to stop what they're doing?

My secondary school had a "zero tolerance policy" on bullying. It was bullshit! Whenever I complained to my teachers they would say "...but what did you do for them to say/do that...?" They could not comprehend that I DID NOTHING! I never started fights. I didn't argue back. I was just different. I was smart. I wanted to learn. I didn't follow "trends". Didn't have the trendiest clothes. Latest toys. Prettiest face... That made me an easy target. 
No one deserves to be bullied. Ever.

The joys of art therapy with primary kids. They’d rather paint me than the paper 😂 #arttherapy #childrensmentalhealth #makingamess
Making time to be mindful together 👩🏼👧🏼 (in between feeds, nappy changes, cooing over the 👶🏼 etc etc) So much to explore in this little square 💜💚

On the @BBCTheOneShow sofa, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge meet Ellie, Eliza and Cameron from Wormholt Park Primary School for a discussion on the upcoming @BBC Kids Online Wellbeing app.

Completely child-centred, the Kids Online Wellbeing app will act as a child’s companion online, helping them understand the impact of their online behaviours, both on themselves and on others. 
The Duke then gave a speech on Cyberbullying — saying to Social Media companies: “Social media companies have done more to connect the world than has ever been achieved in human history. Surely you can connect with each other about smart ways to deal with the unintended consequences of these connections?” Watch The Duke's full speech on our #IGTV channel, or via the link in our bio. #AntiBullyingWeek

I was blown away today by how brilliantly my class of 11 year olds could feel and then articulate where they feel stress in their bodies. Tuning into the signals our bodies send, can really help us learn how to respond skilfully in situations, instead of making automatic, knee-jerk reactions. 🌿 #mindfulness #mindfulnessinschools #mindfulnessinschoolsproject #mindfulchildren #dotb #misp #mindfulkids #mindfulnessteacher #mindfulnessmatters #childrensmentalhealth #kidsmentalhealth #teachersofinstagram #teachersfollowteachers #stress #respondnotreact #lifeskills #loveteaching #loveteachingkids

#throwbackthursday anyone? 😁This is me in preschool 👧🏻 Do you remember yourself at this age? I just remember being hyper 🏃🏻‍♀️🤸🏻‍♂️😂 At this age, children are beginning to think of themselves with their own mind, body, and emotions. They are exploring their own feelings and the feelings of others around them. The little cutie buttheads are working it out 🥰

Well that was pretty darn tough!! My legs were screaming at me around 50 miles in and the idea of including 20 press ups and 20 sit ups every 10 Miles seemed pretty damn stupid after just 10 Miles.. 🙈😅 but after 6 hours 18 minutes and 34 seconds the challenge was completed 💪 115 spin bike miles ✅ 240 press ups ✅ 240 sit-ups ✅ Massive Thanks to the heroes that supplied me with food and drink throughout! YOUNGMINDS is a charity that supports children that suffer from mental health issues. I was shocked to find that statistically 1 in 3 children suffer from mental health issues... and In a day and age where it is now so common in adults it’s vital that we stand up and do everything we can to support our little superstars of the future. I am lucky enough to have the best dad in the universe, he brought me and my bro up on his own and introduced me to unlimited sports and fitness opportunities all throughout my childhood.. I’ve suffered from mental health issues as an adult but my saving grace and go to rock (other than my dad) is sports and fitness. It gives me mental clarity, purpose and drive and I couldn’t thank and love my Dad enough. If your little ones haven’t joined a sports club take them out this weekend and find one! Take them for a run, play football down the park! 💪😊 to those that said “you do realise you’ll lose muscle doing this” It’s not all about looking like your favourite tattooed fake celebrities from Geordie shore, being the strongest person in the gym, showing off your 1 rep max to see how many people like it on Instagram. (Which seems to be consuming the fitness industry in this day and age) A strong healthy mind and heart is the the most powerful thing you can take away from exercise not just a nice looking bicep... thanks for all the donations you heroes 🙏♥️ #fitspo #fundraising #fundraiser #youngminds #thegymgroupexeter @echoeschildcare #challenge #spinathon #cycling #gymmotivation #childdevelopment #childrensmentalhealth #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #starsofthefuture #fitnessinspiration #community #worktogether #movember

Continuation of previous posts: I realised that to be able to make something consoling and comforting, I needed to understand the ‘difficult emotions’ first, and soon found myself stuck, with Sadness. And Anger and Fear. Just to give myself a little bit of a break, I drew Happiness too. It was such a relief! ⠀
⠀
This is a sketch from 2016, one those early explorations of ‘difficult emotions’. It accurately describes the feeling I have of late, of feeling enthusiastic about finally getting this book out in the world - and simultaneously being held back by fear and feeling like hiding instead. ⠀
⠀
Do you experience the same, that the more important something feels to you, the scarier it often feels to commit to it? And for those that published book already, do you remember how it felt to have your first book coming out? Did you find it scary as well, and how did you deal with that?⠀

So finally I see ACE’s on the BBC News.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/education-46181542#

So we know the evidence, what can we do? 
LOTS. WE CAN DO LOTS. 
As parents.

As Teachers.

As health professionals.

As members of society.

Emotional Literacy strategies which fuel connection, validate feelings, support emotional development and self-regulation is something accessible to all and can make a big difference to many.

The time for change is now 🌈

What isn't calming about watching a calm jar? 🤷‍♀️🙏💙 Imagine the glittler and sequins swirling around are like your thoughts and emotions. As the glitter slows and settles, feel your own thoughts and feelings become calm and still. When the glitter has completely settled we can see much clearer through the bottle - the same way using mindfulness stills our thoughts allowing our mind to be calmer and clearer.

Another lovely reminder from @Janeevans 💚

Struggling with your child’s behaviour? Reflect and ask yourself if you’re doing the basics, it’s SO easy not to when we are busy. 
Communication is SO much more than talking.

I will go through phases where I think “where has my lovely child gone?!” only to reflect back and realise that I’ve not met some of their most basic needs.

Listen. Actively listening helps children to feel valued and loved which helps their self-regulation skills and wellbeing as well as modelling to them how to do good listening for you - it’s a win win 👍🏼🌈 #emotionalliteracy #activelistening #emotionaldevelopment #communication #listeningskills #listeningandattention #mentalhealthawareness #childrensmentalhealth #parentblogger #dailyparenting #parentingadvice #parentingquotes #parentingtips #parentingteens #parentingtools #parentingtoddlers #terribletwos #discoverunder1k #motherhoodunited #dadlife #dadblogger #mumlife #mumbloggeruk

When Sara (pseudonym), aged 6, attended Play Therapy, she picked a toy nest & 3 eggs from the Play Therapy room & seated herself at the sandtray. She proceeded to place the nest in the sand tray, placed two of the eggs in the nest & buried the third egg in the sand.
Sara was in therapy to explore the fact that her mother had left her father & her.
Sara's therapist verbally reflected her play to her: "I see you're playing with a nest where three eggs could be placed but you placed only two in the nest. You started with three eggs but only two are in sight now. Hmm I wonder what separates the buried egg from the two eggs that are together."
The process of reflection helps to non-judgementally embrace Sara's expression of her experience while also nonthreateningly returning it to her so as to bring her subconscious feelings into her conscious state. Once she processes her experience consciously, she can begin to work towards finding an inner resolution. 
The integration of open expression & reflection through play gives Sara & other children an emotionally safe & non-intrusive space to grow from.

Humbled by the personal #adoptionstories shared at this event today. Proud to have attended and supported such a worthy cause, and to have been seated with so many caring and dedicated souls. #adoption #fostercare #socialwork #nationaladoptionmonth #foreverhomes #supportingkids #supportingfamilies #childrensmentalhealth
Yesterday at Child and Parent Resource Institute. Teaching trauma-informed yoga and the set up was ideal. Tables were left from a previous event, so the children who attend yoga for the environment and social aspect, rather than the physical practice, were able to gather together at the back #community #recovery #youthmentalhealth

Today’s post for Anti Bullying Week is quite late but I had to think long and hard about this one. 
What do you do if your child is the bully? 
I can imagine it is a lot of parents’ worst nightmare. Knowing that their child is contributing to the misery and potential death of another. However, it does happen and parents need to address it if it happens. 
There may be a number of reasons why your child is a bully. Perhaps they want to fit in with a group of children who routinely bully others? Perhaps they are in need of attention and have failed at gaining positive attention and, as such, resort to negative behaviours? Perhaps they are being bullied themselves? Whatever the reason, it is important to talk to your child, understand their viewpoint and help them move on from this behaviour. 
The Child Mind Institute has some useful information here: 
https://childmind.org/article/what-to-do-if-your-child-is-bullying/

The most important thing is to acknowledge the problem. If you deny that your child is a bully without first looking at the facts, the problem will only get worse. Work with the school to uncover exactly what is going on and then continue to work with the school to resolve the issues. 
You must let your child know that bullying is not acceptable and can have much greater consequences than they can ever begin to understand. It won’t hurt to give them some brutal truths about the effects of bullying. Consistency is the key to eradicating unwanted behaviour. Bullying is a choice and your child needs to be aware of this. 
One important thing to remember: DO NOT BULLY YOUR CHILD YOURSELF! This only reinforces the bullying behaviour. Restriction of privileges is usually a very effective way of modifying behaviour but take the lead from your child’s school.

Bullies can change with these fundamental skills: 
Responsibility
Empathy 
Anger Management 
Impulse Control
Inclusiveness 
Respect

Stopping your child from bullying could save a life.

This drawing I made in 2014. If only we could organise and label all our desires, thoughts and feelings this neatly. Perhaps I’ll manage one day, one book at a time 😉⠀
⠀
When I wrote the proposal during my studies for the initial concept, to make a project that would address difficult emotions and also could comfort and console the reader, I foresaw many problems and pointed out the paradox of wanting to both completely allow for the difficult feelings to be, as to offer solutions and ‘contain’ them somehow. A paradox I sometimes still struggle with. How can you both accept and embrace who you are and try to improve yourself at the same time?⠀
Any thoughts on this?

A book about anxiety and worry. Sadly there are huge numbers of children today who suffer with anxiety or are prone to worry. This book is brilliant. It helps children to understand why they get anxious (it's a normal emotion, some people just have an overactive worry alarm) and explains in a very child friendly way what goes on in our brains when we get anxious. It is a picture book but is really suitable for all ages, adults too!

Emotions are so much more than happy & sad we should be able to feel lots of emotions & understand how that impacts our feelings & behaviours.

This morning we looked at Dear Zoo in our preschool yoga class at Filey Childcare. The children were superb at the animal poses, and we used lots of breathwork too with elephant breath, hissing like snakes and camel raspberries. 
We finished our session with the 3/4 year olds with Animal Friend from #yogapretzels where the children imagined themselves with an animal that provides comfort and reassurance during times of upset or frustration. This is a great way of equipping young children with mindfulness tools so that they can deal with anxieties in a calm way.

Help others in order to help yourself. It’s proven that in times of feeling down and depression, that helping other people and giving back to society can help you feel good within yourself. Pay it forward, dedicate time, items, patience, listen to people, volunteer. Once you have done something good then you can feel good about yourself. Everyone is a winner #worldkindnessday #homelesslivesmatter #mentalhealth #mentalhealthmonth #mentalhealthrecovery #mentalhealthfoundation #childrensmentalhealth #childrensmentalhealthmatters

Repost for #antibullying week. Bullying occurs in the home when we parent from a place of power and control. Following an authoritative, positive style builds not shatters self esteem  #mentalhealthawareness #childrensmentalhealth #positiveparenting #positiveparentingcoach #positiveparentingconnection #positiveparentingconsultant #familyrelationships #relationshipfamilycoach #kentmums #parenting #mumsoftunbridgewells #tunbridgewellsmums #parentingthroughconnection
My beautiful, beautiful meditation with my babies at 7:15 this morning.

On the occasion of Children’s Day, let’s take a pledge to allow your children to follow their passion. Instead of putting them down and labelling their dreams as unachievable and not important, take a pledge to support their dreams. It's okay even if they fail now. Let them learn from their own mistakes and succeed in future. Let's take a pledge to provide a nurturing environment  for them and to look after their mental health. #childrensmentalhealth #childrensday #sunshinecounselingcenter #parentsandchildren

Thank you to one of my readers for this amazing feedback. 🙏😍

My book is the culmination of 20 years of research, study and clinical experience into what children really need you to know and it delights me that this is now resonating with so many of you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The fact that the language I have spoken for all this time is now becoming mainstream warms my heart as it means we are finally addressing children's unmet needs in ways that have meaning for them. We are addressing and dealing with lines of patterning from generations past and raising a generation of children that are whole; in body-mind-spirit. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I had a really interesting conversation a couple of days ago about this. One lady told me it would give children an over inflated ego. 
My argument ... children hear or think negative things about themselves hundreds of time daily. 
I’m not clever enough I got that work wrong
I’ve not got many friends 
I’m not as pretty as ....
I’m not as clever as ....
And that’s not including the things we or teachers tell them - stop being silly, etc etc etc 
Our job as parents is to give our children that over inflated sense of self to counteract the hundreds of negative phrases and comments they hear, and as our children get older, it’s even more important to do this (though often even harder!) If we are not there filling their bucket up with confidence, self esteem, love, encouragement, pride, who is? 😍
