WellRead is a chat bot activity designed to help parents boost their children’s emotional wellbeing with a combination of storytelling and targeted conversations. The WellRead website contains a curated collection of short stories for parents to read to their child. Each story is accompanied with a series of questions that a parent can ask to spark conversations with their child about a range of wellbeing topics. The stories and questions you will find in WellRead have been selected by teams of experts, which means parents can relax and enjoy some quality time with their child, reassured that they’re also caring for their emotional well-being.  It’s free to join, simply create an account.
