The Educational Psychology Service is delivering three online one-hour parents’ sessions in March . The aim of these will be to explore how Covid has affected how children and young people think, feel and behave, and to discuss ways in which parents can support their child through the current challenges. The sessions will refer to our Healthier minds website and resources (https://blogs.glowscotland.org.uk/er/healthierminds) and will involve input from partners across East Renfrewshire who support children and young people’s mental wellbeing.
If you would like to attend, then sign up using the link to the online form included in the leaflet. You can also to submit any questions you may wish to have answered during the session.

These are tough times, and we’re all doing our best to get through them. But if we all put our own twist on the rules, they won’t work and it may lead to even more restrictions.
It’s not easy being a parent at the best of times and it can feel even more overwhelming at the moment. If you need some tips and advice check out Parent Club from @ParentClubScot.
