Supporting Parents Helpfinder (Young Minds)
Times are tough for many people right now. Parents find themselves pulled in many different directions and children may be struggling being in the house for so much longer than usual.
A mixture of concern about COVID-19, working from home and children at home, along with a possible financial impact make for a stressful household.
Young minds have created a useful 'Supporting Parent's Helpfinder.' By answering six questions, parents can find out how to support their child's mental health during the pandemic (and beyond).
When emotions explode (Young Minds)
Young Minds have also created a useful poster highlighting ways to give support to children when they have angry feelings or outbursts and may help families start a conversation and talk about each other's feelings.

The Sleep Charity
Supported by Dunelm, The Sleep Charity has launched a brand-new Children’s Sleep eBook as part of its ‘Tired of Being Alone’ campaign to support parents and carers who have a child or children that struggle to get good quality sleep. It’s a helpful guide that shows how common sleep issues, that parents are not alone and that help and support is available.
When we have children, we expect there to be some disrupted nights. Unfortunately for some families the sleepless nights can continue for months and even years. Parents can feel isolated, lonely and often judged. We want to reassure those who are affected with children’s sleep difficulties that there is help available, and that things can change.
Around 4 in 10 children will experience a sleep problem at some point and this rises to 8 out of 10 children where there is a diagnosis of Special Educational Need or Disability (SEND). These problems are typically persistent and do not resolve themselves without intervention. Click here to visit the website.
