The last two years of life in a pandemic have been hard on all of us. When we add in natural disasters like floods and world conflicts, it can be too much for children to process on their own.
Here are some helpful tips for supporting your child:
At Allowah, we’ve sourced a range of resources to help parents and carers support children who may be feeling anxiety – either from experiencing disasters first-hand or from processing events around them.
It’s also important for parents and carers to look after themselves, so that they have the capacity to support their kids. Allowah holds a weekly parenting support group called MyTime – for parents of kids with complex medical needs and disabilities. It’s a great way to take a break and spend some me-time with parents who ‘get it’. For more information visit MyTime at Allowah – Tuesday Mornings
