Mentally Healthy Kids Are Raised by Mentally Healthy Parents – Raising Mentally Healthy Kids with Michelle Nietert
Mentally Healthy Kids are Raised by Mentally Healthy Parents
I’m excited to present my new podcast, Raising Mentally Healthy Kids. As a parent, you need to realize that your child’s mental health starts with your own mental health, and that’s what Episode 1 is all about!
Key points from today’s episode:
🧠 Raising mentally healthy kids doesn’t mean you can’t struggle with mental health as an adult.
😅 Mentally healthy parents exemplify to their kids how to manage emotions, handle unexpected circumstances, and walk with competence.
💬 Renew your mind by deciding how you want to feel and what thoughts you need to think to feel that way.
👟 Create movement with your kids and move with them!
🛏 Prioritize sleep! (Leave those dishes for tomorrow!!)
🥑 Find practical ways for your family to eat healthily. See if your health insurance covers one visit to a dietician so you can get family health ideas (most insurances do cover this).
⏱ “The other 6 days and 23 hours”
❤️ Scripture referenced: Psalms 118:24, 1 Corinthians 6:19, Proverbs 29:18
