Children are growing up with anxiety, uncertainty and low self-esteem, and the Covid-19 pandemic, bringing lockdown and yet more life online, has intensified these things. Parents can feel helpless to care for their children’s mental wellbeing.

Katharine Hill, UK Director of Care for the Family, has written A Mind of Their Own to equip parents to build resilience and care well for their children’s mental wellbeing, from toddlerhood to teenage years.

Backed by solid, up-to-the minute research and grounded in real life experience, she tackles everything from body confidence, dealing with disappointment to strong emotions, and gives steps to take when challenges come.

In July 2017 one in nine children were experiencing mental health difficulty, this figure had risen to one in six in July 2020. That’s five in every classroom.

Ours is a worried world. Children are growing up with anxiety, uncertainty and low self-esteem, and the Covid-19 pandemic, bringing lockdown and yet more life online, has intensified these things. Many parents feel helpless as their happy, easy-going children are overwhelmed by a tsunami of pressure and anxiety. How can we enable them to flourish in the infamously ‘unprecedented’ times?

In A Mind of Their Own, 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, she tackles everything from body confidence, dealing with disappointment to strong emotions, and gives 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.
