Here at Lifeologie, we are getting lots of questions like “how do I make sure my kids are okay?” “they’re acting crazy” “they’re more anxious than normal” “they’re more angry than normal.”
Please understand that as much as you and I have lost our social circles, our kids have also lost that. Daycare kiddos all the way up through high school, they have suddenly lost all their supports outside of the family. That can be really scary for them.
What we’re noticing is that lots of parents don’t know how to talk about this with their kids because they don’t want to make it worse. Really, when you talk about it, it makes things MORE manageable for the kids.
Above all else, have grace for yourself! This is a tough time!
