Now that there’s a coronavirus vaccine, many politicians and public figures are saying we can return to normal life after COVID. But what is “normal” now that we’ve spent a year and a half in isolation — and new virus variations are throwing people into chaos once more. This can be especially difficult for young people who are trying to process the whole situation and being told to expect one thing but experiencing something else.
From that idea spawned the most recent Cyberwise Chat featuring Diana Graber of Cyberwise, Dr. Pamela Rutledge who is the Director of the Media Psychology Research Center, and Rick Andreoli the Editor-In-Chief of Parentology.
As Cyberwise noted about the webinar, “During this post-pandemic return to ‘normal,’ kids need parents to help them re-learn how to balance screen time with real life, understand how to use technology mindfully and safely and, most of all, help them manage the anxiety and stress many have (and will) suffer during this transition.”
Below is the webinar, and under that is a list of resources that can help parents navigate the coming months.
