Parenting During COVID-19: A New Frontier

From the Canadian Pediatric Society “Parenting during COVID-19: A new frontier”

Selected quotes from the article:

  • The bottom line is that parenting during COVID-19 looks different.
  • Finding small ways to provide opportunities for choice and independence is one way we can support teens during this time of self-isolation.
  • Children and adults thrive on routine…Younger children often have better attention and focus in the morning, while teens tend to focus better in the later afternoon or evening
