Helping Our Kids Through Difficult Challenges On and Off the Field
How is everybody doing? Everyone in your family has likely been experiencing the effects of the pandemic in different ways. As a parent, you might be concerned about navigating limited childcare options while juggling work. Your child, on the other hand, might be worried about interacting with their classmates and teachers online.
In order to truly begin to support each other, your family will want to have a strong understanding of the current state of affairs for every member. Your goal is to build empathy to ensure that everyone feels heard and seen.
If you have a co-parent, we recommend that you start off by aligning with them first, before including your children.
Remember that feelings and needs will evolve, so set up a regular check-in with your family to discuss how things have changed.
