In this week's episode, we chat with Cindy Robinson from The Kid Factory to discuss the importance of talking about and being aware of mental health in our kids from a young age. We discuss statistics and how mental health and illness is affecting the current generation and the importance of talking about these topics from a young age. Cindy explains her "5 essential elements of mental health" philosophy and how that guides her parenting to taking care of her child holistically. We also talk about ways to discuss mental health with all ages of kids and many wonderful resources to help you on your parenting journey! Make sure to follow Cindy on Instagram @the_kid_factory and on her website www.thekidfactory.com
