WELCOME TO MY PAGE!
Dear Highland Families,
I hope everyone is well and trying to stay positive during these difficult times. I have listed some helpful
websites for you to access to help you and your child navigate through this time.
www.Parentslead.org Talking with your child about COVID-19
www.Childmind.org Supporting kids during the corona virus crisis
www.Virusanxiety.com How to talk to your child about the virus/resources
www.heartmindkids.com Mindfulness exercises and activities
www.highlightskids.com Crafts, activities
www.allkidsnetwork.com Crafts, activities & games
These are some things you can do with your child to ease anxiety:
* go outside and play
* talk a walk
* play a game
* read a book
* do household chores together
Parents can also help children calm their fears and anxiety with some mindfulness
activities, such as the following:
* listen to music
* belly breathing
* blowing bubbles
* counting to 10
Most importantly just stay calm, talk to your child, listen and reassure them and let them
know that you are there for them.
I can be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or the School Counselor
Mrs. Candia can be reached at email@example.com, with
any questions or concerns.
Please take care, stay safe and be well!!
