What Facts4Life Offers
For Parents and Carers
“I feel having Facts4Life’s comprehensive health education programme is such an important part of the curriculum … in order to help prevent illness and promote healthy living.” Parent
There are a number of ways that parents and carers can support their children to effectively manage their health & wellbeing and ride the normal ups and downs of life. The Five Ways to Wellbeing: Connect, Keep Learning, Take Notice, Give (Be Kind) and Be Active provide a simple framework for understanding the things that boost our mental wellbeing and make us feel good.
Mindfulness is a practice that can also be used to support mental wellbeing in children of all ages (and adults!). It is based around the skill of paying attention to the present moment with focused awareness and links well with the ‘Take Notice’ element of the Five Ways.
