2 - Back To School
In Episode 2 we’re talking about Back to School - After COVID.  Last school year was tough… parents, kids, teachers, caregivers are all saying it!  For many families, schedules and structure were put on the back burner for day-to-day survival during homeschooling, hybrid virtual & in-person school, working from home, social distancing and all that came with the pandemic.  Listen in as our Director of Children’s Services, Family-Based Program Manager and School-based Program Manager discuss concerns – from both kids and parents – going into the new year, how to rebuild a family routine that works with the school schedule, while still enjoying the summer and how to know when behaviors and concerns call for seeking help.
