Confessions of a Modern Parent
How Coronavirus reaches inside your home and affects your family. What can you do to stop it?
Friday, 3 April
We're all currently in lockdown, stuck in our homes.
The threat and reality of the novel coronvirus is now very real and is affecting those we know and love.
This is unknown territory. Never before has a worldwide threat and response been so invasive and demanding of the global population. Never before have parents been so unable to provide assurance and normality for their children.
What the future holds? We just don't know.
Nadia and Mark try their best to come to terms with their new normal. They reach into their kids experiences and compare with their own adolescence. Their first summer of freedom looked very different to the coming summer, and many teenagers will have been stripped of their social expectations.
So how can we lessen the blow? What can parents do to make this easier, and what other ways is Coronavirus reaching into the home and affecting our lives.
In this episode of Confessions Of A Modern Parent, Nadia and Mark try to find ways to help our children to remain positive and informed, while not overloading with information, news and social media.
And they take questions and suggestions from listeners on their experiences in parenting roles.
