As States across the country being reopening after being shut down for thirty plus days, have you thought about how your kids (or even yourself) will “go back to normal” or a somewhat normal after the rules and restrictions become more relaxed? Will they bounce back or will the last few weeks have caused them some level of stress or anxiety? Each child is unique and there is no magical handbook on parenting, especially not parenting through a pandemic! Shelly Melia’s article entitled “Will My Kids Be Okay?” outlines some ideas on how to navigate these tough situations. Remember, be patient with yourself. This is new for all of us! Focus on the positives and applaud how schools and churches are working to keep us connected. Trust in God and lean on your faith with Him. He walks with us each and every day, even during this difficult time.
