It’s good to remember who is there for us and how resilient we are. Encourage your child to fill in this worksheet and help them to recognise their skills, abilities and support network.
Sometimes, we need to talk to someone. It might be we are feeling a little bit down, need cheering up or really need to get something off our chest. Sometimes, when we are feeling like that, we forget who we can turn to, call up, or email. Sometimes, we just need to keep a list handy of the people who we know are always happy to listen.
The COVID-19 crisis has changed all of our lives dramatically. Use this resource with your primary aged children to encourage them to reflect on their feelings and achievements during this challenging time.
Moving to a new school and forming new friendships can feel challenging and sometimes it’s hard to know where to start. Encouraging your child to have a few questions up their sleeve, to ask their classmates, will give them a simple strategy for establishing these important new connections. See if they can come up with their own, but use ours as a starting point.
