Parenting was already hard, and now we're navigating a pandemic on top of it. We continue to grieve the loss of many things that are important to us - including connections to various sources of support and sense of community. In this webinar, we'll talk about the grief, self-doubt, anxiety, and uncertainty that has come with pandemic parenting. We'll also talk about "good enough' parenting, especially in times of crisis.
