Changes brought about by the pandemic have been especially hard on kids. With that in mind, we hosted an online parenting seminar to help with supporting children through this changing season.

We invited three children’s mental health professionals to speak and answer questions on various topics affecting children ages 3-13 during the pandemic.

Discussion topics included:

  • Missed social opportunities & social development
  • Feelings of isolation & loneliness
  • Increased tension in home and family life
  • How to answer kid’s questions about the pandemic
  • Dealing with changes to everyday life

 

This virtual seminar is available to view on our Cambridge Facebook page and on our YouTube channel. Please be sure to also check out the recommended resources from our speakers.
