This time of year can be very challenging for parents too. There are many worries and pressures that we all feel and it can sometimes be hard to recognise that we need looking after too. The NHS have put together some really helpful ‘Mental Wellbeing Audio Guides’, which are easy to access and particularly helpful if you are feeling low or anxious.
