Mood Management

Here are some tips to help manage your child's moods:

* Set a consistent sleeping routine that allows for sufficient rest every night.
* Avoid stressful situations and activities for your child.
* Learn to read warning signs of your child's manic and depressive moods.
* Regulate your child's activities during a manic episode and provide gentle yet stimulating activities (like swimming) during depressive episodes to keep him/her occupied.
* Prepare a nutritious and balance diet. Avoid too much sugar and caffeine.
