Best We Can Parenting Session 7: Now What?

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.

In Session 7: Now What?  we address what happens next.  After more than two months living in quarantine and adjusting to a very different life, it's time to reflect on what we might have learned, what we might have gained, and how our reflections on lessons learned may impact our lives going forward.  Therapists Kim Rapach from Bending Birch Counseling and Josette Day from Be Well Counseling & Wellness joined us to talk about ways to use this experience to bring about positive change in our lives and in our families.

Questions asked during this session include:

  • What do you do if your kids won’t help with those kinds of projects?
  • I like the idea of “inviting my family into the process.”   What do you do if your kid is shut down and only wants to be on their phoneDo you have tips for how to better identify our family values?
