June is #ParentingMonth. Here are a few tips to help your child feel safe and supported. #OnMyMind
“We were running to the school. Then our military took us away because [the city] started to be severely hit by shelling. The military gave us a jar of yoghurt and then candy and oranges,” says Lyalya, aged 8. Children of #Ukraine – and their families – urgently need peace now.
Gordana Vukicevic and her son Vuk Ivanisevic, aged 5, are planting vegetables in the garden and playing with dandelions. This is the fourth year that UNICEF globally celebrates Parenthood Month in June, with the goal to improve the support system for early child development.
Quality time is precious time. Opportunities for bonding and learning are around every corner. Having fun together helps build your child's confidence while letting them know that they are loved and important. #OnMyMind

A child is a child. Wherever they’re from, whoever they are, all refugee children have equal rights – to protection, inclusion and to be free from discrimination. #WorldRefugeeDay
Half of the world's refugees are children. Conflicts, crises and climate change have robbed them of their homes, dreams and childhoods. This #WorldRefugeeDay, UNICEF is calling on governments to protect refugee children and provide equal support without discrimination.

Income support that lifts them out of poverty and ensures healthy food is affordable and a guaranteed healthy meal at school would help ensure their #righttoachildhood.
Children are still the most vulnerable to food insecurity during the pandemic, and 30-40% of post-secondary students experience food insecurity and #DisrupedLives.
Even before the pandemic, children’s rate of food security was similar to the rate of child poverty – sufficient income is necessary for sufficient nutrition.
Climate change, conflict and COVID-19 – the deadly trifecta has helped unleash the world’s worst global hunger and severe malnutrition crisis in a generation. The #G7 is an opportunity for government action. Read more below 👇 theglobeandmail.com/opinion/articl…N

The effort to navigate disruptions in education and employment during the pandemic has #DisruptedLives, and and they need more flexible and accessible income support to step into adulthood and a good future.
Key transitions for youth toward adulthood are getting longer and more diverse. The pandemic is accelerating trends like the delay of homeownership, and employment attachment. Even though female youth employment and post-secondary enrolment are up, wages are flat or falling.
Only 3 provinces provided support in addition to the federal income benefits, and many clawed back federal income support to the most vulnerable young people. They also need a living wage, equitable pay, paid sick days, and caregiving benefits to avoid #DisruptedLives.
Among 850,000 youth in Canada who lost employment during the pandemic. Too many did not qualify for emergency income support.
Almost half said their thought the pandemic would have a major impact on their employment future. Pandemic emergency income benefits played a vital role in avoiding a poverty calamity.

We need real EI reform that builds resilience for youth. Too often they are excluded by high barriers to qualification, and on average they pay far more into the system than they benefit from it while earning lower wages, to begin with. @pedrobarataTO @fsc_ccf_en #DisruptedLives
“Almost every LGBTQ+ person I have known has faced isolation, stigma, bullying and harassment – even within our own families.” To tackle this, Vandita, 27, from India, founded an initiative that provides teenagers with safe spaces and mental health support. #OnMyMind #PrideMonth
