Parenting During A Pandemic

14 Nov , 2020  

Join the Olentangy Parent Programs Team for a virtual public forum on November 18 from 7 to 8:30 PM.

This March, our world as we knew it was turned upside down. Parents became work-at-home parents AND teachers when schools were forces to closed their doors. The support systems and “villages” we once relied on became disconnected, while the unknown future changed each day. There is not a Global Pandemic chapter of the parenting handbook.

Seven months into the pandemic, the COVID-19 “new normal” continues to challenge parents. Whether you are working from home or back in an office, overseeing virtual learning or navigating hybrid attendance, everyone reacts differently to stressful situations. However, coping with challenges in a healthy way will make you and your children stronger and more resilient.

The Parent Programming Team welcomes Dr. Allisha Berendts, Olentangy Schools’ Assistant Director of Student Well- Being, for a conversation about parenting through COVID-19.  In addition to identifying some of the challenges, Dr. Berendts will offer strategies for improving and maintaining mental well-being.  The presentation will aid parents in ensuring their child(ren) flourish during these uncertain times and bolster their ability to be resilient.

To participate in this virtual public forum, watch the livestream on Wednesday, November 18 from 7 to 8:30 PM at this link: Parenting During A Pandemic.
