Self-care is an essential life skill which encourages positive feelings, boosts one's confidence and benefits our overall health and wellness. We undertake a basic variety of self-care skills every day, including bathing, personal hygiene, grooming and dressing, which are often referred to as activities of daily living (ADLs). But we also want to make sure we are doing things that are fun and make us feel good each day.
Children are encouraged to learn self-care skills from a young age, as not only will they gain independence but also build healthy self-esteem which is necessary for their future own wellbeing.
Sadly, the pandemic has disrupted the vital daily routines of our children and they are now experiencing confusion, worry and unhelpful thoughts and behaviours related to COVID-19, which is why Sue Glasser, the founder of Paperclip Professional Organisers, was inspired to create a virtual self-care program specifically for primary school-aged kids.
With many children spending more time at home, Sue thought it would be beneficial for kids to focus on their wellbeing and develop important skills such as time management, organisation and indeed self-care.
Sue notes that self-care and self-love go hand in hand; taking time to do the things we enjoy and away from screens. This 1 hour Self-Care for Kids session can be enjoyed and facilitated with the help of parents, grandparents, older siblings, au pairs or caregivers.
The program can be completed on the device of your choice at a convenient time for you and consists of:
Help your child develop their mental, emotional, social and physical wellbeing with this exclusive fun self-care program in the comfort of your home. It is an investment in your children's wellbeing into the future.
