It is important to make sure we are offering that same grace to our children. Although being at home with our children 24/7 may be stressful, we do have to understand that our children are feeling the same sense of fear, stress, and anxiety that we are feeling. It is very important, especially right now, to be more aware of the signs our children may be showing us.
As we keep saying, these are unprecedented times. Our mental health is being challenged every day. Now is the time to be gentle with each other, take care of each other, and show our children how important it is to come together and support each other through difficult times. We will make it through this. Let’s be sure we do it TOGETHER!
