Piper has had better concentration. She's listened more and she's more focused when following instructions. Piper's been more open with her feelings and understanding her needs. It's given us quality time together; we rarely get that time, but even just 10 minutes a day has benefited our bond tremendously. 

Most importantly, we've had fewer bedtime protests because she's become more aware of what tired feels like. Piper has always been a happy little girl, but after using the Wee Seeds Mini-Minds Wellbeing Toolbox, she's sparkled a little brighter.

1 in 6 children aged 5-16 is likely to have a mental health problem. That’s pretty scary right?! There are lots of children dealing with anxiety and stress. Or just trying to work out the rollercoaster of life! As parents, we haven’t been shown how to deal with this. Often it’s hard enough looking after our own mental health! Yet, you know that looking after your child’s mental health is as important as looking after their physical health. We’ve designed our Nurturing Wellbeing programme just for parents like you! Parents who want to invest in their children’s mental health and need the support to do that. It’s never too early to invest in your child’s mental health. 50% of mental health issues are established by age 14. Investing in your child’s wellbeing now will give them tools to look after themselves in the future.

The activities in our wellbeing programme only take between five and ten minutes to do with your child. They are fun, easy and engaging! So you’ll both be looking forward to them. Each exercise has guidance on how to do it, as well as tips on what to do if it’s not working. We help you make mindfulness a habit. Small changes to your day will make a big difference.

We’ve a range of exercises in our toolbox, ranging from a few minutes to ten. We recommend doing at least one exercise a day - even the shorter breathing ones - to start to create a habit.

You can try a technique called habit stacking. So you pick a thing you do every day, teeth brushing, bathtime, bedtime, home from school, dinner time. Then you add your habit onto that, so perhaps you do your breathing exercises when you come home from school as a way to connect, or before bedtime to settle. Whatever works for your family. We have some helpful guidance on this in our Family Intentions Setting Guide inside the Toolbox.

 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.

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.

 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.
