One in six children now struggle with mental health. Is yours one of them?

Ours is a worried world. Children are growing up with anxiety, uncertainty, and low self-esteem, and the COVID-19 pandemic, bringing lockdowns and yet more life online, has only intensified this. Many parents feel helpless as their happy, easygoing children are overwhelmed by a tsunami of pressure and worry. How can we help them flourish in these infamously unprecedented times? Katharine Hill, UK director of Care for the Family, throws us a lifeline. Backed by solid, up-to-the-minute research and grounded in real-life experience, A Mind of Their Own tackles everything from body confidence and bullying to dealing with disappointment and strong emotions, and gives hands-on steps to take when challenges come. Packed with encouragement and creative activities, it will help families form good practices like listening well, setting consistent boundaries, and establishing a growth mindset. Celebrating and affirming the family, A Mind of Their Own equips parents to build resilience and care well for their children's mental wellbeing, from toddlerhood to teenage years.
