Many children often need help with calming down from strong emotions. When children need help to calm down, help them to notice the emotion, name it, and pause.  Once they have calmed down, you can address their behaviour or problem-solve.  Learning to calm down is an important part of learning to understand and manage emotions.

These useful prompts, can help to support a child to regulate their emotions.

As both children and adult students learn English, the benefit of ESL is that they can communicate with native-speaking friends and family within the community while reaching out to people who communicate only in English. This can bridge the gap between families and the rest of the world.

Please speak to Kamla if you would like more information on this organisation.

As half term approaches, you will be spending a lot more time sharing meals together as a family.  Family mealtime is when everyone at home sits down and enjoys a meal together. This can be at breakfast, lunch, and/or dinner. It has been shown that families who eat together are healthier and happier.

Eating together helps build a close relationship with your children. It gives everyone in the family a chance to learn more about each other. Eating together as a family gives the children an opportunity to learn and practice their social skills, table manners, and conversation skills.  Your children are more likely to eat a variety of healthy foods if they see you doing it first. Try to include food from each of the five food groups.

These are skills and lessons your children will use for life.

We thought this guide would be useful to encourage positive meal time interactions with one another.

Please speak to Kamla if you would like more information or advice on parenting issues.

22nd April is  Stephen Lawrence Day.
 
Please remember that like most young people, he juggled an active social life, school work, family commitments, and part-time employment. But he also had ambitions to use his talent for Maths, Art, and Design to become an architect and wanted to have a positive impact on his community.
Tragically, his dream of becoming an architect was never realised. On 22 April 1993, at the age of just 18, Stephen was murdered in an unprovoked racist attack. He didn’t know his killers and his killers didn’t know him.
After the initial police investigation, five suspects were arrested but not convicted. A public inquiry into the handling of Stephen’s case was held in 1998, leading to the publication of the Macpherson Report, which has been called ‘one of the most important moments in the modern history of criminal justice in Britain’.
It led to profound cultural changes in attitudes to racism, to the law and to police practice. It also paved the way for a greater understanding of discrimination of all forms and new equalities legislation.
 
The Stephen Lawrence Foundation uses the hashtag “ALEGACYOFCHANGE to help amplify the cause.  If you are on social media you can show your support by using the hashtag on any Stephen Lawrence posts and / or by following the foundation on social media platforms.
