Everybody is talking about how parents are coping with COVID19, working from home, having to homeschool, the amount of cleaning, cooking and 0 breaks they get.
But how our kids are coping with the effects of social isolation during the pandemic? Are they really aware of what's really going on? How are they reacting to their parents' stress? Are they able to identify how they are feeling? How can we help them dig into their own feelings, get them to express themselves in an effective way?
To answer these questions, we reached out to Haylee Bladen, LCSW, Founder & Clinical Director of Whole Kids Emotional Wellness. Haylee's practice helps kids and teens through personal counseling as well as skills groups.
Haylee was kind enough to also offer two Free Printables, read up!
Thank you so much, Haylee! Take it away:
