Children’s Mental Health Week runs until Sunday.
And we’re sharing seven super tips on how you can help your little cherubs cope with the strains lockdown can place upon their young shoulders.
- Listen – Ask them how they are feeling and listen to what they have to say.
- Support – There have been difficult times for all children during lockdown, so remember a supportive word can go a long way.
- Involve – Stay involved in what they are doing and show interest in their activities and opinions.
- Serious – Show their feelings matter by taking what they say seriously.
- Routine – Build and keep to a positive routine. Be that around bedtime, playtime or when home school starts.
- Active – It’s very beneficial for children’s mental health for them to stay physically active.
- Love – Remember this quote: ‘The child that has unconditional love has the greatest gift the world can offer.’

They rarely agree about anything, but MPs from different parties were singing from the same hymn sheet during this afternoon’s virtual House of Commons debate around extending the Stamp Duty holiday.
The debate was triggered by an online public petition that wants to see a six-month extension to the existing deadline of 31 March.
And nearly every MP who spoke during the 70-minute discussion favoured adding at least a further six months or staggering the deadline so that more people can benefit from the tax break.
How has today’s debate impacted sellers and buyers in Sutton and Cheam ?
To be honest, nothing has changed, but the pressure is building on the treasury to act, mainly because the property market generates enormous tax income and millions of pounds worth of home sales are in the balance.
We’re now all playing a game of wait and see until Wednesday 3 March when the Chancellor Rishi Sunak will reveal the Government’s decision.
