As parents, we think about our children all the time and as they become older, we may feel less connected to their inner thoughts and feelings. Are they, for example, stressed out more than we know? Are they experiencing very strong negative, or even positive, feelings?
Amy Smith, my guest today, provides us with a better understanding of student mental health and what we, as parents, can do to better communicate with our children and be there for them.
Amy is a Health & Wellness teacher at the Hong Kong International School as well as a consultant and education editor for Choices, Scholastic’s health & life-skills magazine for teens.
