Even before the pandemic, it was hard work to be a parent. And now, as parents we might be pulling our hair out with the extra stress of trying to a be a teacher now too. Being a parent is hard work – meaningful, rewarding, wouldn’t-trade-it-for-the-world – but hard work even more so now.. So take care of yourself and keep your cup full. If you don’t do things to keep your cup full, you have nothing left to give or share with others.
I have put together some ways we try to manage our stress and anxiety daily during Covid-19.

Put your oxygen mask on first and please stay safe.
