The impact of COVID-19 has radically changed the everyday experiences in many of our families. Children and teenagers are now finishing their school year at home on-line and parents’ roles have expanded to become teachers, caregivers, employees and so much more during this pandemic. For that reason, Lakeside has filmed a Coping with COVID-19 series for parents which is now available on YouTube. You can join Lakeside’s President/CEO Gerry Vassar and Diane Wagenhals, Program Director of Lakeside Global Institute and parenting author, trainer, and coach for relevant discussions on parenting with particular emphasis on the added stressors of parenting in this turbulent time of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Session #3 is a discussion that provides tools to respond to their children’s persistent questions in a way that is respectful, addresses the true need behind the question, and avoids some of the pitfalls that typically disregard children particularly in the uncertain times we face today.
