Some top tips for parents and carers

  1. It’s okay to ask for help. Speak to family and friends about what you need. 
  2. Put yourself in their shoes. They may deal with things differently so try and think about things from their perspective. 
  3. Look after yourself as well. Take some quality time for yourself each day.
