Let’s face it, we as parents are experiencing limited resources in terms of our own energy and what our kids are willing to bring to the table. We are finding kids and families facing more problems with sleep, worry, boredom, and increased screen time. And as a parent, it can be really easy to wonder how the strategies we implement during the pandemic will affect our children later in life; it can be tricky to remember that you are doing the best you can.
If you are wondering about if and when to seek help, start with trying these strategies at home! If you are seeking individual support, drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Now is a good time to try to tap into compassion for your kid and compassion for yourself. We are all just figuring this out one day at a time and course-correcting as we go.”
– Nina Kaiser, Ph.D.
Webinars & Lectures
We partner with San Francisco Bay Area pediatricians to host live webinars surrounding COVID-19. Watch recorded webinars and sign-up for upcoming lectures.
In response to COVID-19, we created a video series to help parents navigate closures, shelter-in-place and normative behaviors for kids of all ages.
