Innocenti Working Papers How relaxing develops and affects well-being throughout childhood AUTHOR(S) Sabbiana Cunsolo; Victor Cebotari; Dominic Richardson; Marloes Vrolijk Published: 2021 Innocenti Working Papers From a developmental perspective, skills or capacities, such as ‘relaxing’, are commonly considered necessary for children to achieve optimal development and reach their fullpotential. From this perspective ‘relaxing’ can be considered a capacity that could help children to cope with emotional and behavioural problems and lower their levels of stress and anxiety.To the best of our knowledge, this is the first attempt to map the existing evidence of cultivating ‘relaxing’ as a key core capacity with an explicit focus on children, and understand age-related development, links to wellbeing and other core capacities, and the levels and application of ‘relaxing’ among significant adults in children’s lives. These contributions will help inform real, positive and efficient changes in general policies and practices for child development. + - Cite this publication | No. of pages: 34 | Tags: early childhood education, education × COPY BIBLIOGRAPHIC CITATION Sabbiana Cunsolo; Victor Cebotari; Dominic Richardson; Marloes Vrolijk 2021 How relaxing develops and affects well-being throughout childhood. , pp. 34.
