Self-Care for Children !!!

Self-care generally refers to the things that children can do to take care of themselves physically and emotionally. Typical examples include: getting the right amount and quality sleep, eating well, exercising regularly, managing stress, and getting your personal needs met in a healthy way.

When a child or teen is confident in their ability to take care of themselves, they may feel empowered and capable of preventing and/or managing a chronic medical and/or mental health problem. Taking good care of one’s self leads to higher personal satisfaction and the ability to deal with the emotional ups and downs that go with daily life.
