Daily video from The Child Mind Institute
Hello P.S. 316 People!
Forwarded below is our daily mental health during-the-time-of-Coronavirus booster from CMI, shared by Ms Maluf.
Today's daily 1-minute video tip is from Jamie Howard, a clinical psychologist, about Relaxing Our Boundaries.
She says that while the structure of schedules is important to have in place, it is also okay to be flexible and relax those boundaries sometimes (maybe when you need it, or they need it). Maybe let your kids watch an extra episode of their favorite TV show or stay up an extra 15 minutes at bedtime. When you do this, it's important to let your kids know that our regular rules are not cancelled, this extra TV show is a temporary treat.
CMI is continuing their live facebook video chats. Today at 10:00 am is Self Care for Parents. Their previous live sessions are archived and available for viewing. One useful topic was How to Set and Maintain Boundaries. Watch this before you start relaxing those boundaries!
Have a good day!
