Podcast: Talking to parents lessons learned through lockdown
In our bonus episode, in partnership with Netball Australia, host Cath Cox chats to 3 parents from Australia’s netball community about navigating the tough times of 2020** – what challenges have they faced this year and how can we look after our children’s mental health, as well as our own?
MENTAL WELLBEING TOOLS & TIPS FOR PARENTS
We’ve teamed up with Netball Australia and Calm Kid Central to design practical tools and tips to help parents talk to kids about their feelings during tough times.
At HCF, we understand the importance of mental health, especially in times like these. And just like netball’s elite athletes, children need support to navigate change and uncertainty. We spoke to child mental health experts about how children react to change, keeping kids socially connected and ways to talk to kids about big feelings.
