These are challenging times for everyone, but for parents trying to juggle homeschooling, cleaning, cooking, work commitments and the ordinary demands of life with children, each day can feel almost impossible.
One of the greatest antidotes to uncertainty and overwhelm is the sense that we're not alone. People do better when we're connected with others as we navigate difficult times.
I've been touched by how uplifting our weekly Better Together Monday gatherings have been. We answer questions, offer homeschooling tips, and share ideas for combating feelings of loneliness and isolation.
If you've been feeling a little wobbly or would simply like to feel that you're part of a network of parents around the world going through some of the same things you're dealing with, please join me each Monday at 11:00 am Pacific time--or watch the replay soon after each get together.
These are free events and our next gathering is Monday, June 8 at 11 AM PDT. I'll be joined by Janice M. Robinson-Celeste, publisher of Successful Black Parenting Magazine.
