ALEXANDRIA, VA, March 12, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ -- It's been a tough couple of years for everyone, especially parents and children. In case you've forgotten the bumps and bruises, here's a refresher: changing roles and relationships as schools flip-flopped; understanding and maintaining boundaries when suddenly forced to be together in small spaces for extended periods; figuring out how to explain the severity of a pandemic without creating panic in our children—or ourselves; and in some cases, all while mourning the loss of a loved one.
For many of us, navigating this pandemic has been the most challenging event in our lifetimes. Prior experience with other crises was not enough, and we were forced to change our plans and expectations at lightning speeds. And, ultimately, we needed to be able to pick ourselves up again with our world falling apart around us.
How did we fare?
