Self Care for Elementary Students

Tip #2-self-care begins with helping your child talk about their feelings.

Let your child know that is is important to acknowledge when they are struggling with their emotions in order to manage those feelings and be able to keep it away.

Few times a week sit with your child to talk about their feelings
