3 Tips to Support Kids’ Mental Health in the New Normal

3 Tips to Support Kids’ Mental Health in the New Normal

You know better than anyone how your child’s life has been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Although many kids are remarkably resilient, some are still struggling to adjust with the changes.

This is natural. The routine that once made them a sense of control and freedom have been erased. Classrooms have become computer screens, playgrounds were closed, and their friendships were put on pause.

It’s understandable that they might feel irritable, frustrated, or even sad sometimes.

Wondering how you can support your child’s mental health? Here are 3 tips:

3 Tips to Support Kids’ Mental Health in the New Normal

1. Talk to your child

Children feel big emotions that they don’t always have the words for.

So it’s best to ask and help them identify how they feel about the current situation. Validate their emotions. Explain why they can’t go out. Ask if they have concerns or questions then answer in a truthful, calm way.

Reassure them that you are always there whenever they need someone to talk to.

3 Tips to Support Kids’ Mental Health in the New Normal

2. Encourage healthy habits

Kids can feel and do better during this challenging time if they get enough sleep, eat healthy meals, and exercise regularly.

That’s why it’s important to re-establish your family’s daily routine—including your child’s online classes, household chores, and relaxation.

Encourage activities that boost their mood, such as watching child-friendly shows like Superbook.

3 Tips to Support Kids’ Mental Health in the New Normal

3. Help them develop a sound mind

Everyone—including your child—is prone to stress, cabin fever, and moments of fear.

Help them develop a sound mind and find comfort in God by teaching them how to pray.

3 Tips to Support Kids’ Mental Health in the New Normal

Superbook opened its Kids Prayer Line to help kids pray!

5 Life Lesson We can Learn from the Story of Esther

A beauty like no other turned a simple Jewish girl from being an ordinary citizen to being the queen of an entire nation! But there is something more about her than what meets the eye—she possessed a courage that helped save her entire race from annihilation.

Here are five lessons you can learn from the story of Esther:

  1. You Are Where You Are for A Reason

04212021_5 Life Lessons You Can Learn from the story of Esther_1

God led Esther’s steps and used her as an instrument to save the Jewish people from being wiped out.

Esther became the Queen of Persia after King Xerxes’ wife, Queen Vashti, was deposed. Among all the beautiful women in the empire, Esther’s beauty and personality stood out. The king was so delighted in her that she was declared queen! Upon the request of her cousin, Mordecai, she kept her nationality a secret and later on revealed it to save her people from the impending danger Haman had planned.

God has a purpose for your life, and He allows things to happen for a reason. Like Queen Esther, God may have brought you where you are for a special purpose. Maybe you are in a workplace filled with workmates who need to hear about Jesus. Or in a campus surrounded by students who need the Lord in their life. Maybe you’re the only Christian in your family who God will use so your loved ones could hear about Him. If you find yourself in a position like Queen Esther, remember her story. Who knows? God may have placed you there for such a time as this.

  1. You Can Run to God in Times of Trouble

04212021_5 Life Lessons You Can Learn from the story of Esther_2

When Queen Esther learned about Haman’s evil plan toward the Jews, she asked Mordecai to gather all the Jews in Susa to fast with her for three days and nights. Fasting is a spiritual discipline that Christians do. We fast to acknowledge our dependence on God and focus on Him.

Esther knew that the first thing we should do is to run to do God. Only He can help us face and win life’s biggest battles.

  1. Have Courage

04212021_5 Life Lessons You Can Learn from the story of Esther_3

During the time of Queen Esther, it was against the law to approach the king without being summoned. But even if it meant risking her life, Esther went to see the king. In Esther 4:16, she bravely said, “And then, though it is against the law, I will go in to see the king. If I must die, I must die.”

With her faith in God and her people standing with hers in prayer, Esther took the most difficult decision of her life, faced the king, and saw God’s deliverance.

  1. Pride and Hatred Lead to Destruction

04212021_5 Life Lessons You Can Learn from the story of Esther_4

Haman’s anger was aroused when Mordecai chose not to bow down to him. Because of this, he decided to kill all the Jews. Haman asked for the king’s approval to issue a decree that would have all the Jews killed. Before something tragic happens, Queen Esther had already approached the king and planned a way to stop their annihilation. In the end, the Jews were saved, and Haman was executed.

  1. God is Sovereign

04212021_5 Life Lessons You Can Learn from the story of Esther_5

The Jews may have feared for their lives when they learned of Haman’s evil plan, but God proved that He is sovereign overall. God used Queen Esther to stop Haman’s plans. She invited Haman for a banquet with the king and exposed His evil plans of destroying the Jews. When the king learned about this, He was angered! He ordered the execution of Haman.

God is with us through difficult times. Always remember that He is actively working behind the scenes and His plans will always prevail in our lives.

Are You Feeling Insecure?

Kristine Briones knows exactly how you feel. 

04122021_Are You Feeling Insecure_1

She too, struggled with insecurities and low self-esteem when she was bullied by other kids at such a young age. The harsh words they hurled towards her carved a huge impact on how Kristine sees herself.  

“I was bullied when I was young. They used to call me names such as “flirt” and told me that I do not belong with them. I felt that I was not beautiful and there was no place for me anywhere,” Kristine recalled. 

Deprived of love and acceptance from her peers, Kristine grew up longing for security. So when love knocked at her door, Kristine willingly let him in. 

04122021_Are You Feeling Insecure_1

She thought that maybe, this romantic relationship can give her the sense of worth and belongingness that she was craving. Maybe, this relationship can make her feel safe and secure. 

Maybe, just maybe, this person can fill the void in her heart. 

Kristine admitted, “I fell in love with this man. He is a Christian like me, so I thought I can be secure in this relationship. I had that kind of mindset before.” 

How about you, have you ever tried to find security in your relationships? How did things turn out? 

As for Kristine, things did not turn out the way she hoped. 

04122021_Are You Feeling Insecure_3

Her then-boyfriend had to move abroad, leaving her crushed and broken. In just one snap of a finger, all her hopes came crashing down. 

While trying to nurse a broken heart all by herself, Kristine chanced upon CBN Asia’s program, Superbook. Who would have thought that an animated show for children would speak to her, right? 

“It was an episode about ‘What’s the Isaac of your life?’ God rebuked me that I am overly attached to somebody else, so even when it’s painful, I had to surrender the relationship to Him,” Kristine shared.  

Not long after, she saw the hosts of The 700 Club Asia on her television screen, praying for a brokenhearted person who needs healing. 

04122021_Are You Feeling Insecure_4

“They asked, ‘What’s one thing that you need to surrender? That moment, I found hope and realized that I can rely on God,” Kristine said, sharing that putting all her faith in God helped her face all her insecurities. 

As a chapter of her life closes, doors of opportunities opened. Kristine got into acting and started appearing as a television extra. She also starred in TV commercials of famous brands and landed roles in reenactments of The 700 Club Asia. 

04122021_Are You Feeling Insecure_5

More than finding her security, worth, and personal healing, Kristine is delighted that her acting stint with The 700 Club Asia became a way for her to share God’s Word with her loved ones and viewers. 

“The best thing Jesus did for me, is He allowed me to have a relationship with Him. He made me dependent on Him. Despite what the world tells me – that I am not good nor beautiful enough, He appointed me to this industry. God has a purpose, and though I had fears, the Lord replaced my fear with my love for the craft,” she ended. 

04122021_Are You Feeling Insecure_7

Are you feeling insecure? 

Know that even when other people push you away, God will always welcome you with a loving embrace.  

And whenever you feel insecure, take a deep breath, and remember this truth: You are beautiful just the way you are because you were created by a beautiful God. You were made to be free and confident of who you are in Jesus Christ! 

We are here to pray for you. Do not hesitate to call the CBN Asia Prayer Center at 8-737-0-700 or send your prayer requests to our Facebook page.

Superbook Helped Bicolano Kids Develop their Love for Reading

Learning made exciting!

To support the Department of Education (DepEd) and Talisay Local Government Unit’s campaign in improving the reading comprehension of students, Gizmo and the Superbook team brought an ultimate Superbook experience to hundreds of Bicolano kids last March 6.

The Superbook team graced the launch of DepEd’s storytelling program dubbed “Bisita Ko, Basahan Mo Ako. Paglaki Ko, Ikaw ang Idol Ko” in Talisay, Camarines Norte. The children enjoyed a role-playing activity featuring Superbook‘s “Joseph and the Pharaoh’s Dream”, a film-showing of “A Giant Adventure”, and exciting Superbook games. The children also got to sing and dance with Gizmo.

Along with Superbook, firefighters, policemen, and other volunteer professionals came to read stories for the children who came from ten different schools in Talisay.

Emma Soriano of Bicol Schools Division Office said, “Thank you, Superbook, and to everyone who gave reading materials, for helping us boost our pupils’ love for reading and helping them improve their communication skills.”

More than just encouraging kids to read, Superbook stays true to its mission in sharing the Gospel to children all over the Philippines and teaching them good values. 9-year-old Jacob Asalva said, “I am very happy to see Gizmo and play with other kids! Because of Superbook, I learned that there is a God. This inspires me to be a good kid.”

By watching “A Giant Adventure”, Jacob learned to be brave. When his father died, Jacob and four of his siblings were left under the care of his grandmother, Salvi, while the other four were adopted by relatives. Having to face these huge challenges at such a young age, Jacob was encouraged by David’s courage in fighting the giant Goliath.

“David inspired me to be brave. I want to be a soldier someday,” Jacob shared.

Help us bring the Superbook experience to more children like Jacob and reach out to more schools, churches and communities! Go to batangsuperbook.com/supergifts or visit Batang Superbook’s Facebook page. Invest in the lives of the Filipino children!
