What is Back to Basics?


"Empowering Parents/Carers to support their children's wellbeing"

Empowering parents and carers to support their child’s emotional wellbeing within the home

Looking after your family's wellbeing is very important. Families all need some help from time to time due to life changes or events.

As a parent or carer, you can take small steps to help your child's wellbeing as well as your own. You can do this by starting with the basics.

Using the back to basics approach can empower you to take control of the 5 Ways to Wellbeing.

Consider one area at a time. Think about your home environment and what small changes you can make together as a family.

Think of it as building the foundations of a house, making sure your family has all the basics in place such as:

  • Healthy eating
  • Sleep
  • Exercise
  • Good routines
  • Looking after yourselves and your child's wellbeing

If foundations are not in place, there is a risk of cracks appearing.
