As families and friends are out enjoying the summer weather together, at the Cook Center for Human Connection we are continually focused on how to help parents help their children. July’s Newsletter is focused on Mental Freedom - the importance of language and the power to change the way we think about ourselves and the way our child thinks about themselves.
As we celebrate our freedoms in this country, we invite you to take the time to learn more about Mental Freedoms and the power you have to avoid negative self-talk. Freedom is extremely important for positive mental health. In the July Newsletter, learn how to empower your child by being aware of the language you use, which shapes your child’s beliefs about themselves. Establishing mental freedom is the ability to make good choices for one’s self and others. Learn tips and tricks to help your child become confident in their decisions and how you can foster independence in your child. Also, learn more about how you can help fight the stigma around mental health!
