Enter our Instagram Competition!

thrive competition To mark Stress Awareness Month this April, we’ve got a Thrive tote bag full of goodies to give away for you to help children stay well-regulated, describe their emotions, and be ready to learn.

To be in with a chance of winning, all you need is an Instagram account (contact socialmedia@thriveapproach.com if you need help setting one up) and a space within which you’re working with and/or supporting children, perhaps a Thrive room or even at home.

You don’t need to be a Thrive Practitioner to enter, we want as many people as possible to get involved!

How to enter:

It is Stress Awareness Month, which means we’re focusing on the impact of stress on children, and the ways in which adults can work collaboratively to prevent potentially overwhelming emotions. You can find out more about the Thrive approach to helping children undergoing stress here.

From working in Thrive settings to caring for children at home, we know lots of you have strategies and activities you use to help children overcome stressors.

To enter our competition, upload a picture to your Instagram of an object, activity, or space that you use to help children calm down, keep happy, and de-stress.

Examples might be:

  • Particular activities such as drawing or painting
  • Particular music
  • An exercise activity
  • Cooking
  • An area of the Thrive room/school/home where they feel most comfortable
  • An outdoor space
  • A calming or comforting object such as calm down bottles or a familiar toy
  • A special book
  • A favourite meal or drink
  • Mindfulness practice

Whatever method you’re using, we’d love to see.

Tag us (@ThriveApproach) in your post and make sure to use the hashtag #ThriveStressComp so that we can see your competition entry.
