The Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton recently shared a message about ‘Children’s Mental Health Week’ – the first in the planned annual initiative of Kate’s ‘Place2Be’ patronage, one of the causes closest to her heart.
39-year-old The Royal Family member, Middleton wrote in a selfie video caption on Instagram, “Tomorrow is the start of Children’s Mental Health Week – an opportunity to remind ourselves not only how important our own children’s mental health is but also the well-being of parents. We look forward to sharing more of this year’s theme to express yourself throughout the week. “
The mother of three looks comfortable and casual in a blue hat and jacket as she stands outside her family’s country home, Anmer Hall. He spoke directly to the camera about this year’s theme, which is “Express Yourself”.
“This year’s Children’s Mental Health Week is about expressing yourself, about finding creative ways to share your thoughts, ideas and feelings,” explains Kate.
“So whether it’s through photography, through art, through drama, through music or poetry, finding things that make you feel good about yourself,” he added.
Despite the weekly event titled Children’s Mental Health Week, Kate stressed that parents should also find ways to express their creativity.
“This is a very challenging time for all of us, so please take care of yourself too,” said Middleton.
“Find ways to share your thoughts and feelings or find someone to talk to because we really need to be the best version of ourselves for the children in our upbringing.”
In the video, he also reminds parents that the lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic can add more stress to their lives than usual.
“Make sure everyone takes care of themselves. It is very difficult to prioritize but it is definitely needed now more than ever,” he said.
“It’s important for our children that we also take care of ourselves.”
Fans applaud Kate’s message in the comments section.
One follower wrote, “Very important, many years ago my late mother’s mantra was, happy parent = happy child.”
Another added, “A beautiful & caring woman. Diana would be very proud of William & Catherine.”
