I know there may be different opinions about this but I think it shows signs of maturity when you try to learn from the mistakes you made in the past. I don’t focus on the past. I am trying to be more in the moment with the time I have left. I know we all make mistakes in life myself included but for younger kids especially if the kids are really young every thing from skipping school sometimes called truancy for children in high school or middle school. Playing hooky was what they used to call it. The country and NAMI National recently started creating more programs for kids to get a few mental health days I think elementary and middle school aged kids may get a few mental health days every school year or marking period. Kids in middle or high school have IEPs but the kids deserve a few mental health days school year. NAMI has newer programs that started a few years ago reading the NAMI Advocate magazine. I think this is a great step. I used to volunteer with Just Kids the kids program.
