Coping in uncertain times

Seasons for Growth have developed two factsheets to help us to cope with the uncertain times in which we are currently living.

The first is ‘A Guide to Self-Care and Wellbeing During Times of Uncertainty’.

This fact sheet gives ideas for looking after our own wellbeing and helps us to recognise what the behaviour of our children and young people is telling us, as well as giving us ideas about how we can help to support them through these uncertain times.

The second is ‘Adapting After Lockdown’.

This factsheet utilises evidence-based tips and tools that you can use to support your children to adapt and cope with change.

“The only thing in life that is permanent is change. Change is the one constant in life”

(K. J. Fallin, 2013)

These tools about coping with big emotions, and supporting your child’s social and emotional wellbeing may also be of use.

Parent Club offers up-to-date guidance from the Scottish Government on your child’s health and education. It’s full of hints and tips from other parents and carers who’ve been there before. It also has advice to help you look after your own wellbeing and to point you in the direction of the support available.

The Parent Club site is always helpful, for all ages, but is especially useful at the moment as we navigate our way through another lockdown. They explain the Scottish Government guidance in more detail and try to cover a range of questions you may have as a Parent/Carer.
