Pandemic parenting has not been easy! But there have been silver linings, too: More family time spent together. A slower pace. Shared meals. Shared activities. Now, as we all shift from stay-at-home pandemic mode to easing back to normal activities, family arrangements will be disrupted again and new challenges will emerge. Any change in schedule can be tough for children to adjust to. And although most kids will be happy to be back to school and reunited with friends, for some it may kick up social anxiety after so much time apart. Whatever adjustments you and your family face, remember that counseling services are just a quick phone call away, 24-7.
