Yesterday, I ran across a great site for kids health! It is called Kidshealth.org. They have both a written blog and an audio blog that kids can listen to. The site has many resources for kids, teens and for parents, each under their own tab at the top of the page.
For kids with ADHD, anger or anxiety issues, or kids dealing with trauma or loss, it can be confusing and scary to go to therapy or see a psychiatrist. this blog post here does a great job explaining therapy to children. And instead of having parents read the post to their children, the blog provides an audio version of the post so that kids can listen to it. However, the audio voice is kind of robotic ,so parent may want to read the article to their kids out loud if the child cannot focus on the audio. Here is the blog post: Going to a Psychologist, Psychiatrist, or Therapist.
Kidshealth.org has a lot of good info about feelings, handling bullying, dealing with puberty and changes in the body and more! The site has a great list of blog posts about feelings that are explained in language children can understand. Here is a list of topics they cover to teach kids about their feelings:
