The best way to avoid pre-bought Halloween costumes that aren’t environmentally friendly… make your own! But finding the time is another thing. So why don’t you make superhero leaf masks this year. Go for a walk. Collect leaves. Press them this weekend, and then decorate them in a week or so. What a great way to embrace Autumn and have fun! Totally free too. Your superpower, a creative & cool solution! 🦸‍️ 🦸‍️ 🦸‍️🦸‍️🦸‍️ Link in bio from @soloskates lovely post a few years ago!

It’s World Mental Health Week this week, which is a wonderful opportunity to talk about our children’s mental health and how best to support our kids through their emotional ups and downs. In the research @courtneyadamo did on adolescence for her Tweens & Teens e-course, @intheloop.teens she learned that it is normal for mental health and self-esteem to plummet at the onset of adolescence and puberty. Adolescence is a huge developmental period where children’s brains are being reconstructed, their emotions are supercharged, their bodies are changing and they are charting a path away from their parents, leaving behind the comforts and familiarity of childhood. If you think about it, it would be strange if our tweens and teens didn’t feel confused, anxious and self-critical at some stage in this developmental period. These emotional ups and downs are completely normal. Despite knowing this, it can still be incredibly difficult to see our children sad, anxious or angry. Sometimes their big emotions can make us uncomfortable or want to retreat. So what exactly should we do when we see our children struggling? Link in bio for some recommendations Courtney’s gathered from the research she’s done… #worldmentalhealth
