Summer holiday and well-being

19th July 2023

For a lot of children, the summer holiday means a break from the stresses of school. But a change to the normal routine can bring other challenges for many children. Clicker is a good tool to use to check in with a child to see how they are doing.

If your child is struggling with the change, the When My Routine Changes Connect Set or the How Do You Feel Word Bank can help them express how the change makes them feel and what they can do to feel better. Their writing can be a great conversation starter for the two of you.

With all the action and excitement that summertime brings, don’t forget to plan in some quieter moments. Practising mindfulness can help children manage their emotions and build self-control. If you are heading over to the local park or a friend’s house, why not make it a mindful walk on the way – focus on what you see, hear, smell and feel. You can read about a similar walk in the Clicker Book A Mindful Walk – Read a Book. Children can use the Clicker Board to reflect on what they experienced during their own walk.
