COVID-19 Coping Series for Families
COVID-19 Coping Series for Families: Starting Tonight
Coping with the COVID-19 crisis is difficult for everyone. Helping kids cope can complicate things a bit more. Parents want to know: What do we tell them? How much do we share? Should we tell them details? How do we answer their questions, when we don't know what to say?
After reaching out to our readers via our newsletter and inviting them to fill out a very brief, two question survey, to see what their family's greatest current needs were, I set out to develop a series of articles to address those needs. The infographic above gives a sneak peek of what we have planned so far.
Starting this week, we'll be rolling out the articles as they are completed. We'll be sharing the latest information, resources, links and support materials to help you do your best and be your best, even as we face these challenging times.
We are all in this together, and I continue to be encouraged by watching people work collaboratively to try to accomplish one goal.
