Taking Care Of Your Child’s Mental Health With These Suggestions

When it comes to our children’s mental health, sometimes we cannot be 100% sure what we can and should do to help things. Children are sponges and they can pick up on anxious feelings from adults and situations can start to affect their own mental health and wellbeing. Often feelings and emotions can’t always be explained, and making sure there is established routine and understanding can help you and your child to ensure that their mental health is positive and in a good space. So what can you do to take better care of your child’s mental health? Here are some suggestions.

"Thank You For Helping Me Bloom " - Teacher Appreciation Gift

This post is sponsored by BabbleBoxx.com on behalf of The Quaker Oats Company.

As parents we already wear many hats, and if school closures taught us anything it is that we appreciate teachers more than ever before. If you are like me, then you are having to learn new ways to keep your kiddos entertained while making sure they stay engaged in school work at home. Without ideas and the virtual help from both of my kiddos' teachers, I don't think I would have had the capabilities to manage homeschooling.

There are so many ways to thank a teacher and Quaker sent us an awesome custom box of goodies so we could easily create something special for my children's teachers. This box was filled with Quaker Kids Organic Bites & Bars along with fun activities such as a DIY Wood Heart Frame, Thank You Note Kit & Stickers, and a t-shirt and paint. So, we were inspired to create an easy craft so our children's teachers will know they are appreciated.
