With schools closed, social distancing practices in place, and an order to stay at home, many children are left feeling confused during the COVID-19 pandemic. Parents are also faced with new roles at home where they must balance the demands of working and parenting in close quarters. Finding support and effective techniques to manage stress is now more critical than ever for the wellbeing of families in our community.
This Community Conversation features our team of Positive Parenting educators and will focus on finding positive strategies for maintaining a healthy family life during quarantine, managing challenging behaviors, and helping our children cope during these difficult times.
