In this difficult social and political climate, many families are feeling weighed down and stressed out. It can be hard to find ways to cope with our reactions to the news, especially for kids who are not sure how to process what’s happening. For this week’s #TipsOnTeens question, we’ll discuss ideas for how families can stay connected and take care of each other right now:
“Our family has been heavily impacted by the news and the protests. It’s hard not to feel angry and hopeless. My kids in particular are overwhelmed and worried and I wish I could take that pain away for them. Are there any small daily things we can do for our family’s mental health? I just want to get us through this dark time.”
