Processing the Pandemic and Things We Can Practice
“Be” before “Do”
1. Connections before escape
2. Rhythms before schedule
3. Compassion before expectation
Follow-up Q&A Discussion to the Webinar, Processing the Pandemic and Things We Can Practice.
Questions answered in this discussion:
1. How do we protect our youth in CPS from online and cell phone interactions that are dangerous?
2. How do we balance being present for our family/children and work without seeing it negatively? Would you say it's better to carve out blocks of time to spend with my children and work, switch task back and forth all day, or a combination?
3. How do you help/how does it translate when children have not connected well with their classmates during this time?
4. How do you approach these strategies with the other parent so you are on the same page?
5. Do teachers need to do anything to prepare for 2020 - 2021 school year?
