How to survive quarantine with your husband and kids…like for real!!

Twisted social experiment? Thriller on Netflix? A nightmare? Nope, this is our new reality. Stuck in the house with your husband, kids, & pets for the unforeseeable future! Sure our parents, grandparents & great grandparents had to endure far worse, with World Wars, Great Depression, Vietnam, etc. Meanwhile the only war we’re possibly waging is War of the Roses (and I’m not talking about the English Civil Wars, we’re talking the movie with Michael Douglas & Kathleen Turner, 1989). Ultimately we’re enduring this quarantine out of love for others, because it isn’t about us, it’s about not spreading the virus, it’s an act of kindness. But it doesn’t mean we have to like it! So here are some tips to help you survive being quarantined with your spouse & kids for the unforeseeable future…… Read more

Resurrection Rocks! (Modern take on Resurrection Eggs)

Resurrection Eggs have been a tradition in most Christian families for years. What are Resurrection Eggs? They are a dozen plastic eggs with tiny symbols in each that represent an important occurrence during Holy Week. These symbols help children to remember the story leading up to Jesus’ Resurrection.  The only problem is children tend to enjoy playing with the symbols so much that they often become misplaced. So in an effort to eliminate the need to go hunting for a tiny donkey at a hobby store on Palm Sunday painting Resurrection rocks seemed like the perfect alternative. And what’s more, it’s simple & fun! Read more

As parents we are greatly concerned about our children’s physical health. From the moment our babies are born we take them to their checkups, at 7 days, a month, 3 months, 6 months, yearly, etc. And we often make appointments in-between with concerns over respiratory or ear infection, fever, or stomach issues. And there’s the rare event of an accident on the playground, bunkbed, etc. that could land your child in the Emergency Room needing x-rays for broken bones, stitches, etc. Yes, when it comes to our children’s physical health we don’t miss a beat. We watch for the signs, the tugging on the ear, fever, lack of appetite, we physically see a bruise, cut, scrape, broken arm, or leg. What about their mental health? How do you see their anxiety, depression, stress, etc.? The outward symptoms of mental health concerns simply aren’t as easy to spot as a physical disease or ailment.

Did you know…

  • Depression is one of the most common mental illnesses, affecting an estimated 300 million people around the world.
  • If mental illness is not treated early, it can increase the risk of other disorders throughout life.
  • It is important to address these issues early, while the brain is still developing and interventions stand a better chance of taking hold.
  • One in five teenagers in the U.S. seriously considers suicide annually.
  • Approximately 1,700 teenagers die by suicide each year.

As parents we need to crush the stigma that is still too-often attached to mental illness. We need to provide just as much care, concern, & urgency with our children’s mental health as we do their physical health. If we can show them from a young age how Mental & Physical Health are equally as important we could literally make the world a better place for not only them but future generations!

Are you ready to take that first step toward shattering the stigma & get your child’s Mental Health Well-Check?  Then call, WeCare Psychiatry Associates Today!
