Our children are affected too. They can tell that things are not quite right and that the adults in their lives are stressed. They hear us talking about the virus, or “big germ,” as some moms have nicknamed it, and may not understand why they must #stayathome and #keepadistance! More time at home with this heightened stress level can inevitably lead to increased anxiety for our children. You may be noticing more whining, tantrums, and sibling rivalries, no matter how attentive you are trying to be. We are social beings that thrive on interactions and variety. We hope these resources bring your family together!
