Schools across the world are shutting down, and governments are ordering citizens to stay in their homes. Hopefully these actions will stop the spread of the Coronavirus.
With so many children stuck at home without their usual routine, there is no doubt that many parents have questions. Should extra steps be taken to curb internet usage? Should strict schedules still be enforced? What’s the best way to help their child cope with isolation?
We found a wonderful article by Quartz in which a therapist who specializes in children ages 10 to 14 gives parents advice on the best ways to cope during this difficult time. You can read the article by clicking here.
