Dear parents who are learning as you go during these uncertain times,
You're gonna be okay! We're going to figure this out.
We wanted to encourage you that your kids most need to feel comforted and loved right now. To feel like it’s all going to be ok. And that might mean that you tear up your perfect schedule and love on your kids a bit more. Play outside and go on walks. Bake cookies and paint pictures. Play board games and watch movies. Do a science experiment together or find virtual field trips of the zoo. Start a book and read together as a family. Snuggle under warm blankets and do nothing.
Your kids mental health is more important than their academic achievements. And how they felt during this time will stay with them long after the memory of what they did during these weeks is long gone. You know how to love your kids best!
We all need help and encouragement during this. Check out these resources for activities and ideas for your family.
