The third topic for the Online Sessions was ‘Supporting Children with Anxiety’. This involved a one-hour parents’ session for parents and carers of children at Thornliebank Primary School. The aim of the session was to normalise the experiences and emotions of children who are experiencing anxiety and stress in the context of changes and disruption that they have experienced throughout the pandemic. There was an exploration of strategies to reduce anxiety levels, and a focus on how you can best support your child throughout this time. The session referred to our Healthier Minds website and involved input from teachers and other partners across East Renfrewshire who support children’s mental wellbeing.
