Building Healthy Habits

A weekly update of content from childmind.org featuring parenting advice, in-depth articles, and the latest thinking on children’s mental health and learning disorders.

July 19, 2022

Summer can be a great time for kids to practice the kind of skills they’re unlikely to learn in school, like learning how to handle money responsibly (maybe even get that summer job!), fail without freaking out, and get comfortable with free time.

This week on childmind.org we’re rounding up expert advice and tips to help kids build healthy habits this summer. We’ve got guidance on getting organized, polishing off chores, practicing making decisions, and more, to help kids learn skills that will benefit them all year round.
