A coalition of children’s agencies has created a guide for parents of young children during the COVID-19 crisis. The free document has 22 pages with ideas for staying at home, managing stress and making the best of changes to family routines.
PCHAS' Rachel Gillespie contributed to the guide. She directs the Growing Together Program, which teaches parenting skills and develops self-sufficiency. “This is a stressful time,” Gillespie says. “Parents may be worried about their income and children pick up on that. But children under six need a lot of attention, so the guide has tips for reducing stress and building a better bond between parent and child.” Topics include healthy snacks; bedtime and TV time; self-regulation and self-care.
