It’s Okay to Not Be Okay: Managing Parenting Pressures During a Pandemic

Date: Tuesday, May 12, 2020
Time: 12:00 – 1:00 pm
Location: The webinar link will be shared with you via email prior to the session start time.

Parenting is difficult in the best of times, let alone during a pandemic. In this webinar we will discuss some of the pressures parents are experiencing as families try to work, study, live and play in close quarters and constant company. We will validate struggles, reflect on shifting expectations during a pandemic and consider strategies for navigating this difficult time without adding additional pressures or lists to participants. Good enough is good enough, especially right now.
