Kids Emotional Development & Wellbeing

There is nothing more important to me than the emotional wellbeing of my children. It’s the reason for my interest in personal development – to ensure that any issues of my own don’t negatively impact on my children. It’s inevitable that the our own childhoods will colour the ways we parent, but with by being mindful and intentional, we can ensure that the influence is a positive one on our kids emotional development and wellbeing.

Supporting Kids Emotional Development & Wellbeing

I’ve written extensively about ways to support children as they grow and learn:

One of my ongoing projects in the area of supporting children’s emotional development and wellbeing is reviewing and recommending kids books that teach values and diversity.

Index of Kids Books That Teach Values and Diversity

In this series myself and some of my favourite bloggers share and review the best kids books that teach values and support difficult conversations around various subjects such as loss, disability, divorce, etc.

This page serves as a resource for parents to help smoothe uncomfortable discussions with children and will be updated as more books are reviewed. Please find links to the relevant review posts below, and please feel free to contact me to request specific topics to be covered in the future.
