Workshop Wednesday: Navigating Homeschool, Childcare, and the Grind
About this Event
Juggling work, virtual learning, and your own sanity; Join for a discussion of life and survival strategies during the pandemic.
Parents across the country are faced with uncertainty about the upcoming school year. Some schools are offering choices about schedules and remote versus in person learning, while some schools remain committed to one option. Furthermore, support for parents from public schools varies widely school to school, district to district, and state to state. Common in all of these wildly different scenarios is the anxiety, stress, and uncertainty of continued online learning, as many of us try to maintain our businesses, and care for ourselves and our families.
We welcome you to join this edition of Workshop Wednesday to:
- Gain some guidance and find support for living this virtual life that is continuing through the upcoming year
- Get tips for coping strategies you won’t find on a pinterest board or Instagram feed
- Speak with Licensed Psychologists about specific challenges you are facing: the emotional needs of children of all ages and the impact that stressful life events has on individual and family functioning
- Learn how to manage age- and ability-appropriate expectations
- Master what it really means to set boundaries.
There will be a brief introduction and most of the time will be spent in a Q & A format to address specific concerns around keeping your kids engaged while learning, and keeping yourself sane. We WON’T tell you to stick to a schedule, get some exercise, or pick up a hobby, or anything else you can find in an instagram meme.
Our speakers would like to get a sense of who will be attending this workshop and what specific thoughts, questions, or areas our attendees would like addressed during this workshop. To that end, you will be asked a few questions during the registration process. Questions are optional but all your inputs are valuable!
This event is FREE for NAWBO NYC members – be sure to use your discount code.
