It’s August. I can hardly believe that over four months of this pandemic lifestyle have really passed. In so many areas, it seems like life is outside our control, so many things about which have no choice. For example, I am sure that the question on the minds of those who have school aged children or grandchildren is probably, “Are they going back to school?” Two of my children are still in school and that question is certainly on my own mind.
COVID restrictions have been so difficult for us as adults, that sometimes we forget the collateral damage that it has had on our children. Children all over the world have been told that they can’t go to school, they can’t play with their friends or play at their local park. They have had massive changes to their routines. Many children have probably experienced anxiety because of the extraordinary changes in their lives.
