Create Your Own Calm

Children’s mental health has been really impacted by current events with Childline reporting a 37% increase in calls since the Coronavirus pandemic began. Children have struggled with being away from friends and school, lack of routine and worries about health, their family, and the world as a whole.

Next, they have school to return to contend with and all the changes that involve one way systems sitting apart from their friends, new rules.  This is a real time of anxiety for many kids.
