When a child is spending so much time scrolling down the screen looking, comparing and ingesting this “false” narrative, how, as parents, can we protect, redirect and monitor how they are feeling? There are so many things today that can contribute to your child feeling less than, feeling anxious and feeling depressed especially during this past year. We know that genetics and environment play a huge role in mental health.

take the pledge to use cell phones responsibly

Before you give your child a cell phone—or if your child already has one—make an agreement with your child to use it responsibly. The days of using a cell phone for phone calls only are history. Sexting, cyberbullying and “text bombing” are very real concerns and should be discussed early. With the Parent/Child Cell Phone Contract, parents and their children can openly discuss and agree upon the responsibilities that come with having a cell phone. Download the free MASKMatters App today to access the contract and get the conversation started at www.maskmatters.org…

modeling mindful moments

When people say that children are sponges, they aren’t kidding. According to Michigan State University, most children learn through observational learning.

Working for too long can cause burnout and make it harder to complete tasks. Scheduling downtime throughout the day will give your child’s mind and body the break it needs, whether it’s taking a walk,…
