Money raised by #childreninneed means we can work with young people across Tweeddale to boost confidence, increase resilience, support relationships, build teamwork, develop friendships and help our children to be the best they can be! Thank you for your support. @bbccin
Moira Stark is a longstanding supporter of PYT and has also been a superb volunteer mentor for us in the past. She has written and illustrated this beautiful book which is now on sale, with proceeds going to our friends at Tweeddale Youth Action.
If you are looking for a thoughtful Christmas gift please head over to The Super Store or Elmbank Print to pick up a copy for just £7. Well done Moira! 👏📖
So much of what we do in our daily interactions can fill a child's "emotional cup" - greeting them warmly, sharing a funny story, giving them time to talk about their interests, appreciating their efforts & conveying empathy for their feelings ☺️
The emotional cup is a helpful way to explain to your child why it's important for them to identify how they're feeling, to come to you if they're running on empty, and what they can do to ensure their cup is always full. Emphasise the importance of always taking care of themselves and their mental health ☕️
This is an exciting week for us at PYT, as we start our 'Achieve Your Potential' workshops with some local Primary 6 pupils; we can't wait to meet everyone and enjoy some new confidence-boosting games! ❤️
