Can you believe that the gushy, romantic, overpriced day is upon us again already?!

How Do I Help My Child Look After Their Mental Health?

Did you know that 1 in 8 children and young people have a diagnosable mental health condition?

I got this statistic from the children's mental health charity Place2Be, who are running #ChildrensMentalHealthWeek this week. Their theme this year is 'Find your Brave' which focuses on teaching children the importance of looking after their own emotional wellbeing.

I'm a huge advocate for children being taught about mental health as young as they can, so they can start to build strategies and awareness about their own mental health which will help them manage it throughout their adult lives.

There's so many things we can do as parents to help children understand their feelings and thoughts, as well as teach them how to regulate these healthily.

Due to my own mental health I often worry about how my son is learning to manage his thoughts and emotions, so I've spent time researching ways to teach him things that don't come naturally to me.

Here are my tips, feel free to add your own in the comments, the more the merrier!
