I try to approach my work from a solution focussed approach as a person can get too absorbed in the problem

Karina Skinner
01:27:30
Do you have some links to this mindfulness practice
Zahida Iqbal
01:28:45
some people are so used to taking their children to paid outdoor activities, they struggle or donot have the skills to undertake simple play activities at home. During the pandemic a lot of children are struggling with boredom so these tips are useful
Camelia Manolache-Rugina
01:29:45
perhaps watering plants could be link with practical biology or physics, developing vocabulary ( name of flowers, trees,, insects ) environment
Andrew Wain
01:31:17
that works Camilia, my parents did that and I am 55 now and did the same with my children and theres.
Zahida Iqbal
01:33:52
Mental health will be better managed through such strategies in children at present IMO
Karina Skinner

Jo Dalton

Does anyone know of any helpful resources for children who are struggling even more than usual with ‘addiction’ to on-line games? Have been asked for help by a contact and I know its a big problem for many families.
Karina Skinner
01:46:27
How do I get an attendance certificate?
Rebekah Chadwick
01:47:09
Jo, I'm afraid I don't, but I know it's a significant problem for a lot of people
Rebekah Chadwick
01:47:57
I guess parents/carers implementing clear boundaries, with consequences for violating the boundaries will be helpful? (easier said than done I know, when parents have their own work etc to do too!)
William Davies
01:49:41
And these are exceptional times so maybe we can ease back a bit on how concerned we are about screen time?
Jo Dalton
01:49:53
Thanks Rebekah. Yes, have heard of a year 6 child going back to school highly anxious because they are no longer in their virtual world and interacting with online friends.
Andrew Wain
01:50:00
Jo Ive just done a web search for children and online game addiction and alot of choices came up. Rather than document them here it may be worth doing the same.
William Davies
01:50:16
Yes Badri, keep an eye on the Wednesday webinar page and it will appear there.
Jo Dalton
01:50:16
Thanks Andrew
