Posted on by Leonardo Rocker (Quirky Kid Staff)

Kimberley O’Brien, our principal child psychologist, discussed the ‘Golden rules for healthy kids’ with reporter Fran Molloy from Practical Parenting Magazine . Other very useful recommendations where presented by doctors ad health experts. You can find useful, practical and informative advice about parenting by visiting our resources page, – or discussing it on our forum.

According to Kimberley, parents should:

  • Try to make sure that ‘free time’ is family time, not screen time. Figure out some activities the whole family can do, such as cooking together, playing board games or backyard cricket
  • A regular family meal at a table, with no TV and everyone talking together is also really important. This can be breakfast if you have a baby or infant.
  • Help your child express her feelings. When she has a tantrum or gets really emotional, talk her through the event and untangle all the feelings she had and why she might have felt that way.
  • Help to reduce your child’s anxiety about an event by explaining what is going to happen beforehand.
