The uncertainties of the COVID-19 pandemic have challenged us as parents in managing the mental health of our children and adolescents.

How can we support and teach our children and adolescents about COVID-19 so that they can understand this crisis and manage it? What techniques can we use to support our children and adolescents' social and emotional health? What are the risks when the stress of changes in the schedule, routine and expectations from social distancing, canceled classes, remote learning and reliance on parents for academics have become overwhelming? How do we identify these risks and get help?

Join Sonya S. Wakil '79, P'18, MD, PLLC, board certified child, adolescent and adult psychiatrist with over 20 years of experience, in a virutal discussion moderated by Lauren Garson Sanders '07, to answer these questions and learn more about talking about the coronavirus pandemic with children.
