Mental health is just as important as physical health, yet it often goes unnoticed and untreated.
Children are especially vulnerable to mental health issues, and it's crucial for parents to be aware of the signs and symptoms.
Your home should be a haven for your child, where they feel safe to express their emotions without fear of judgment.
Create an open and supportive environment where they feel comfortable talking to you about anything.
Active listening is a skill that can make a world of difference in your child's life.
It means giving your child your undivided attention, without interrupting or judging.
Let your child know that their feelings are valid, even if you don't understand them.
This doesn't mean you have to agree with their actions, but it does mean you need to respect their emotions.
