As a parent, your job is to protect your child from harm. Kids look to you to keep them safe from injury, protect them from illness, and to teach them skills to navigate safely and make good decisions.
A child’s physical, behavioural, cognitive and emotional growth development is a lifelong process that begins early and influenced by healthy lifestyle choices.
Positive mental health requires your guidance and support to ensure children learn and practise the social and emotional skills needed to overcome challenges and reach their potential.
Positive interactions with your child provide the opportunity to inspire good relationship skills, teach them what makes a relationship healthy and to help children develop skills important for future health.
