Continue the learning journey with the following writing prompt:
In SELF-CARE SUPERPOWER, have students share their experiences with self-careby writing a two- to three-page essay about the importance of asking for help when you need it. Have them start by thinking about why kids and teens may not generally feel comfortable asking for help during challenging times. From there, they should list some of the health benefits of reaching out for help when you need it—even when it feels hard. Have them conclude by reflecting on a time they reached out to someone for help and how that person’s presence and support made them feel. Alternatively, they can conclude by describing a time when they were the person who helped a friend or family member in need. If they choose this option, they should explain how it felt to help the person who was struggling.
