Hello Vermont Guard Members & Families,
Like many of you, I recently sent my children back to school for the first time since March. Some districts have opted to do strictly remote learning to start while others have given the option for in person or remote.
Making decisions regarding our children’s schooling can be daunting and stressful, especially during COVID-19. There can be some anxiety and fear added to our “new normal” now. Below are some suggestions to help you navigate these difficult times.
• Check in with your child and family members frequently and listen to their concerns. Make sure to validate their emotions, letting them know that their concerns and frustrations are understandable.
• Help your child and family members focus on what they can control in the fight against the pandemic, such as hand washing, wearing a face mask and practicing social distancing
COVID-19 has us all on edge wondering if things will ever return to the way they were. It’s important to remember that it is ok to ask for help, it’s ok to seek mental health treatment, and it’s ok to take some time for yourself to reset and get back into a good space.
