Help Your Family De-Stress During Coronavirus Uncertainty

“With so much uncertainty over the last couple weeks, lots of families are feeling stressed out. Events are being canceled, spring break plans are being put on hold, hand sanitizer is in short supply. And some families are dealing with school closures, or at least the fear of them. During this difficult time, we hope you’ll find time to take care of yourself, and your kids. We’ve rounded up a few ideas for how to enact self-care for the whole family—with the help of media and tech, and sometimes without it.”

An article from Common Sense Media with help for all families stuck inside during these trying times.
