Sometimes as parents we’re so focused on getting everything right around the family, that we might forget to look within. 

It’s important to raise children that can be confident, show resilience and feel safe

Maybe we need to ask ourselves, is it addiction to games, or is it that children and young people are trying to satisfy their natural competitive need?  They don’t seem to get this need met in school when sports day is about the taking part and not the winning.  Maybe they’re taking ownership of that part of their natural development.

We like to think nothing unfortunate will happen to our own children, especially when it comes to their well-being and being kept safe.  The reality is though, things happen when we least expect it, and to the least likely person. 

When children are worried, they don’t like speaking about it.
