The future King and Queen of England are promoting Children’s Mental Health Week in the U.K. this week and are sharing some parenting advice along the way.
They kicked off the week Monday with a visit to a primary school in London where they presented the “Kindness Cup” to a student who best exemplified kindness.
A survey released by @_place2be today – polling over 700 10-11 year olds, reveals that 63% of Year 6 pupils say they worry “all the time”. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge joined children at Mitchell Brook Primary School, at the start of Children's Mental Health Week to see how they are spreading #alittlekindness, and look out for classmates who may be having a difficult time #ChildrensMHW
Princess Kate shared some advice with the students about some valuable lessons her parents taught her growing up.
“I think that every child should have people around them to show them love, and to show them kindness and nurture them as they grow. This is what Place2Be is doing so amazingly here in your school,” said Kate as she spoke at the Place 2Be assembly. “That is why William and I want to teach our little children, George and Charlotte, just how important these things are as they grow up.”
Place 2Be is one of the U.K.’s mental health charities for children.
