Kids are facing unprecedented daily challenges daily to their mental well-being. Pressures from academic demands, social interactions, and the pervasive influence of technology contributes to heightened stress levels and diminished emotional resilience. BYY expert, Avashna Ramnarain, Founder & CEO of Mindful Masterminds, gives guidance.

Some children are naturally sensitive and may have a hard time coping with change or expressing their emotions. The lack of accessible and child-friendly resources for mindfulness and community support compounds these issues, hindering children from developing essential coping mechanisms and emotional intelligence.

From academic pressures to social expectations, the modern world places a myriad of demands on our children. Anxiety, once perceived as a solely adult concern, has become increasingly prevalent among the younger generation. As a parent, witnessing the impact of anxiety on our children is both concerning and motivating.
