Parents are more concerned than ever about the socio-emotional well-being of their children after research has shown a negative impact on children’s mental health after being at home more than usual, having had less time with other children and their friends, and missing out on face-to-face time with teachers in the past school year.
This has inspired the Thomas & Friends brand to help make it easier for kids when they enter or return to school and learn to interact with others ― and more importantly, to make new friends.
Thomas & Friends worked with Lee Scott, educational advisory board member for the Goddard schools and child development expert, to weigh on the challenges children face, to help provide tools for parents and inspiration for kids.
