Recently, I’ve been talking to a lot of my parents, kids, and families about developing healthy habits. As mental health clinicians, we specialize in, well, mental health! But keeping ourselves healthy means taking care of our whole selves. Helping our children to develop healthy habits, whether it is taking care of their bodies, minds, or spirits is a significant part of promoting a child’s overall growth and development.
Children are influenced in many ways, but their eyes and ears are almost always on their parents. They are watching to see what they are doing, what kind of choices they are making, or listening to what is said.
Enjoying our summer parenting series as much as we are? Stay tuned for more tips and info.!
Until next time, Be Wise!
“I don’t think we could survive our kid without The Wise Family. Our clinician is so patient and such a compassionate person. She helps our child feel so in control of his body, and us so in control of our parenting.”— Parent of 6 year old client
“Oh my gosh, my daughter just thinks Grace is amazing and I am so glad that she has someone to talk to that isn’t me! She is so happy after her sessions! Thank you.”— Mom of 15 year old client
“Dr. Amy knows how to relate to children and make them feel comfortable. My son was shy in the beginning but Amy asked him a couple of questions about what he likes and immediately found a connection with him. He happily followed her into the office (just after a 3 min of conversation) and performed the test. He wasn’t nervous or scared and it’s because of her ability to relate to kids.
We had a great experience and he wants to go back! Thank you very much!”— Dad of 5-year-old assessment client
