Raising a Teen During a Pandemic

Hello Everyone, I hope you are all safe and well. This is a trying time for us all, but despite our close physical proximity to each other, it could still be easy to forget each other's needs and to forget how this particular situation is affecting us as unique individuals. As a child and adolescent psychologist, I like to believe I am in a unique position to exquisitely understand the needs of my two teen children. However, as this situation continues and my own family stress grows, I am (graciously) reminded by both my children that I don't know as much as I think I know. Today, I came across a great article that really highlights what teenagers are dealing with (and missing out on) during this very unique period of time. It is a very worthy read. Take care, Dr. S Being a Teenager Amidst the COVID-19 Pandemic
