We're going to mark this time in history with a special episode on how parenting and family life has been challenged by the Covid-19 pandemic and how our creative resilience has carried us through.
In today's episode we want to honor the challenges and hear from families first hand about what they've found has made the difference for them in terms of carrying forward and adjusting. Resilience doesn't come easy, folks....it's worked at. I find that it helps to hear ourselves in the stories of others, experience closeness through witnessing stories that may not yet resonate, and have the opportunity to share resources - the strategies and supports that have helped us wind our way through the mess of this first-time pandemic experience we're all in the midst of. So that's what we're going to do - sit in the mess together and offer one another some hope.
And if a little side reading is helpful for you, check out a couple of articles I wrote back in March and May when this crazy virus first hit us. It includes some practical tips for helping your family cope and thrive during this time.
