In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, BStrong Together is honored to partner with the Barrington Area Library for Best We Can Parenting - a new virtual parenting series to help parents navigate the challenges of our new world. For more information and to register for upcoming sessions, visit balibrary.org.
In Session 2, therapist Alex Goreham from Stenzel Clinical Services discusses how to support our younger children during these difficult times as well as shares tips and his BE SMART model for parents of all ages. Alex reminds us that it's okay to not be okay and to give ourselves the space to know that we don't have to be perfect parents. What is important is our outlook, staying present in the moment, modeling positive coping strategies, and just being there to support our children during this unusual time.
