Got Kids (or an Inner Child)? Focus on safety and attachment.
We are going to be living for a bit with the unprecedented demand of meeting all work deadlines, homeschooling children, running a sterile household, and making a whole lot of entertainment in confinement.
We can get wrapped up in meeting expectations in all domains, but we must remember that these are scary and unpredictable times for children.
Focus on strengthening the connection through time spent following their lead, through physical touch, through play, through therapeutic books, and via verbal reassurances that you will be there for them in this time.
