Please take a look at this introductory video from Hugh van Cuylenburg to give some insights about modeling practices to our children that we use to support our own mental health and wellbeing. Hugh will introduce you to the stories that have been the springboard of the great work that is The Resilience Project.
The video can be found in the link above.
Children learn from watching as much as they learn from conversations and the explicit teaching that we engage in together. When you are regulating your emotions, help your child to recognise what is happening for you by naming how you are feeling and what strategies may help you to calm yourself.
In this presentation, Hugh shares a personal experience about his sister's battles with Mental Illness.
Note: This video contains a story about an Eating Disorder that may be triggering. Please consider this before watching.
