Parenting in quarantine? Who would’ve thought that would be a thing we needed a guide to? Not us.
Well, COVID-19 has certainly brought some unique challenges for families. If you’re a parent, you’re now finding yourself trying to educate, navigate extra screen time, find space for conversations, work from home while they’re home and make sure your kids stay healthy mentally. How can you balance it all?
Recently, we interviewed Dr. Rob Meeder (a pediatrician and dad of 4), Leslie Brodie (a guidance counsellor and mom of 2), and Carla Brubacher (homeschooler and mom of 4). Together, they shared some of their insights from their years of experience in the fields of health, wellness, education and … parenting!
To listen to the full conversation, as well as some questions asked by our viewers, head here to watch.
Below is a list of the resources that were mentioned in the conversation. It was a rich conversation full of so many helpful insights!
