As we’re all learning how to navigate a global pandemic and quarantine, we wanted to share our experiences with social distancing, the joys we’ve had from this time at home and how we’ve personally been navigating the challenges of balancing parenting while staying up to date on information regarding COVID-19.
In this episode, we talk about the biggest resources for parents during this pandemic, how it’s okay to take a step back and do less and how this is similar to what a lot of our grandparents and parents went through with the 1918 Pandemic and Great Depression.
We also share where the Generation.Mom podcast is headed next including a short break we’re taking (and how you can stay connected with us during the break). Although we’re taking a break we are going to be re-releasing some of our very favorite episodes so you can continue to enjoy past episodes.
