Expressing yourself is about a child finding ways to share feelings, thoughts, or ideas, through creativity.
It is about finding a way to show who they are, and how they see the world, that can help them feel good about themself.
As parents and carers, you play an important role in your child’s mental health.
There is also a crucial need for parents and carers to look after their own mental wellbeing, and the impact that this has on the children in their care.
