Self-Care is a deliberate and conscious effort to take care of our emotional, mental and physical health and well-being. Self-Care is being kind to ourselves, our minds and our bodies. When we practice self-care, we do better in school, our relationships with others are healthier, and feelings of anxiety and depression are diminished.

Below you will find resources you can use at home to help teach this important skill to your child.
