Wee Seeds Nurturing Wellbeing Toolbox for Parents and carers

If you’ve ever looked around at your life and thought everything is just going too fast, then we’re here to help.
 
We all know good mental health comes from slowing down, a reset, a refresh, and spending time with the ones we love.

Yet often this is hard to do. Even when we know we’re not setting an example to our little ones to follow as they grow up.

It’s time to break the circle.

We want to give you the tools to empower you to help your children and family hit pause, take some time to slow down, and be present.  

  • We’re here to help you plant the seeds of positive emotional and mental wellbeing skills in the early years
  • We want to help set your children up for life with tools to support themselves. 
  • We want to help your family connect

Join our community of parents and carers just like you in our Wee Seeds Nurture membership and we can offer you a toolbox of easy, fun, activities for you to teach your children wellbeing skills, along with community support, guest speakers, and meditations.

We’re rooting for you!

It's tough out there

Research shows an estimated 20% of young children worldwide experience  mental health disorders (WHO, 2018). Some as  young as two-years-old.

This figure is likely to be much higher, as most  conditions go undiagnosed.

Yet support for families at the sharp end of a rise in mental health problems is sparse. 70% of children don’t receive the support they need – and many must wait years.  And a lack of early intervention impacts our little ones as they grow up into teenagers – around 50% of mental health issues are established by age 14.  

That’s where we step in.

We want to provide parents and carers, and  professionals working with young children, the tools they need to help plant the  seeds of positive mental health and emotional wellbeing in the early years.

Mindfulness and meditation is scientifically proven to improve mental health and we believe introducing these skills early on is key to children’s life chances.

Mindfulness can improve

Mental wellbeing

 Regular meditation, even for a few minutes a day, increases  mental strength.

Physical wellbeing

Meditation reduces stress, improves sleep, energy, and future health  outcomes.

Emotional wellbeing

Meditation alerts neural pathways in ways that improve emotional regulation.

Family connection

Mindful parenting can lead to a better parent-child  relationships.

Frequently asked questions

Yes, there is a wealth of mindfulness and meditation tools on the internet! You’ll find resources for primary school ages kids, and adults. There’s very little for your early years child. That’s where Wee Seeds comes in. You’ll be getting specifically designed mindfulness, mediation and movement tools for early years children, designed and tested by parents and nursery practitioners. We know our tools work. You’ll also be getting access to our Wee Seeds Community, and our new mediation circle, giving you space to meet real life parents like you who want to do the best for their children’s wellbeing. What’s not to like!

Wee Seeds Nurturing Wellbeing Toolbox is delivered online. We offer you and your family a series of guided exercises to do with your children to help teach them calm and focus, through mindful breathing and movement. We also offer a series of sleep audios to help your little ones learn the benefits of sleep, and guide them off to the Land of Nod. There’s are also a series of videos to explain mindfulness, and downloadable PDFs including a 28-day-calendar, yoga scripts, and how to guides.

Yes, as long as you stay a member.

All of our exercises are grounded in fun. We know kids love to play, and so we make mindfulness fun. All our exercises are games based, or involve imagination and play. Our activities are parent and child designed and tested, and all our meditations are written by parents, and loved by children!

Your course access allows you entry to our FREE Facebook community where you’ll find a supportive community to help you on your wellbeing journey for your children and your family. We’re also around to help with any concerns or worries you have - and you can email us for support..

Don’t be discouraged if it doesn’t stick the first few times, just keep teaching the Wee Seeds activities like it's a game and do as much as your child is happy with. We have specific guidance in the course for this situation. Remember it takes a while to get into a new habit. Try to do at least one activity a day, even if it’s just some calm breathing! To help you we've created a free 28 day calendar to ease you into it. Once you've familiarised yourself with Wee Seeds tools, our calendar can be something you can use to bring some stability to practising every day if it helps.

Don’t worry if you’re new to meditation - we’ve got you. Lots of our parents are - they know it helps but don’t know where to start. That’s exactly why we’re here! We’ve a series of videos on what mindfulness is, as well as guidance for parents for ALL our exercises. We’ve got your hand and are here with you as you learn, and teach your children well being habits to last them a lifetime! Also, remember 75% of parents using Wee Seeds exercises noticed a positive difference in their children - and themselves - and many of them had never tried mindfulness or meditation before.

Ellie
 Mum to Lyla, 6 and 3 year old Sonny.

Parenting two small children can be challenging at the best of times, but now, during Corona Virus, it's been more important than ever to be able to talk to my children about their feelings and how to find calm in chaos.

Wee Seeds has been great in giving my family the confidence and tools to talk about difficult feelings, and giving my children the space to be sad, angry, frustrated and all the feelings we're all feeling right now, and know how to return to feeling more at ease with all the changes they're dealing with.

Jennifer
Mum to 3 year old Mousa

My toddler and I are both LOVING the Wee Seeds exercises. I've wanted to try to bring more mindfulness into his routine for a while now but honestly didn't really know where to start.

Mousa just instantly loved them. He will occasionally ask for the balloon breathing, or the garden yoga if we haven't done it for a couple of days. He'll pull out my yoga mat and say: “Mum I want to do Bugs yoga".
 
I absolutely love doing the yoga exercises with him... but more than that I love that he WANTS To do it.

Julie
 Mum to Dexter 8 and Ariana 4

 I was really pleased to receive the 28-day calendar to try with my 4-year-old. My 8-year-old already have experience in mindfulness so it seemed like an easy next step to engage my daughter. She is a very active, determined child so I was excited to see how things went with her. I am happy to say that, she really enjoyed doing them. She loved the Pause Button and the Little Bugs and really enjoyed doing the Focus Eyes when we were outdoors. The exercises are simple and straight forward and the website is visually lovely and easy to use. Thank you Christina and thank you Wee Seeds.
