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 consider different challenges that have come up during the twists and turns of the pandemic, and reflect on strategies that have helped during this difficult time. We will validate struggles, reflect on shifting expectations during a pandemic and consider strategies for moving forward, without adding additional pressures or lists to participants.
