Emotional skills help kids - and parents - navigate challenging times


A mother stares into her phone while her young daughter clamors for attention on a playground, over and over again. The moment of tension is brief, but uncomfortable, before the mother puts down her phone, apologizes, and begins to play with her daughter.

This scene comes from a new public service announcement created by Rocky Mountain PBS and the Western Colorado Community Foundation to support mental health in Colorado.

The idea is that parents can help their children build important mental health skills, like resilience and regulation, when they set aside distractions and take time to connect.

Over a million Coloradans turn to Rocky Mountain PBS to discover provocative and inspiring local, national and international programming; find diverse viewpoints; score front row center seats to world-class performances; and experience lifelong learning opportunities every month.
