Childhood Anxiety – Tech Resources

As a parent and a teacher, I really value opportunities to talk about mental health and wellbeing with children. Most of the time, just having the conversation does a wealth of good; letting kids know it’s OK to talk about it and OK to feel different. However, there are going to be times when you need to be a little bit more equipped…

This Parent’s Guide to Childhood Anxiety – featured on Tutorful  contains lots of good advice (including resources from the Children’s Society) which seems to me to be very grounded and down to earth (not trying to make something out of nothing), and genuinely aimed at helping parents feel confident to talk their children through anxious times.

Obviously because of my primary computing angle, I’m particularly interested in the resources section titled – Anxiety Relief Tools. Here you can find a compilation of great apps and books designed to help by providing calming distraction techniques, promoting exercise, or simply starting conversations.

Take some time to browse through some of these as a teacher or parent; see if any jump out at you with particular children in mind. I can already think of a few I’m going to introduce…

Let’s keep our youngsters’ minds happy and healthy.
