Parenting Matters

Supporting the child as we stay at home. Parenting Matters would like to offer some parental support to help them help their children during this unique time in history. With the need to stay close to home comes trials and stressors that are not common place for many. Below is a link to an article I wrote in response to requests from parents on how to support their children during these weeks and months to come when they struggle. Birthdays, holidays, school, fellowship, and separation from peers and loved ones all can cause children to become overwhelmed. I hope this article can help parents focus on calming and healing such matters.
