Practicing self-care can help alleviate the psychological distress and anxiety caused by the pandemic and prevent lasting adverse psychological outcomes. The Canadian Mental Health Association recommends self-care as a coping strategy. According to award-winning author, training provider and Early Years consultant, Dr. Mine Conkbayir, children who experience nurturing and stable caregiving go on to develop greater resilience and the ability to self-regulate uncomfortable and overwhelming emotions (that’s right, the kind a pandemic brings). How can you as parents assist? Dr. Conkbayir has created an acronym to help us remember the principles to help our little ones self-regulate.
