Parents are facing unique challenges during this pandemic.  A large study conducted by The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) in Toronto found that 70% of school-aged children experienced a deterioration in at least one mental health domain since the beginning of the pandemic (Tombeau Cost et al., 2021). We were meant to raise our children in a village - with support from family, friends, neighbours, and the community. Not only have you frequently been parenting in isolation, but you've also been doing so in the midst of prolonged stress and significant uncertainty.  Our children have been growing and learning in unprecedented circumstances, leading many of us to wonder about the effects the pandemic has had on their development.

It's all been... a lot.

Here's the thing...

You've been parenting in this challenging situation since March, 2020. You're likely weary of Pandemic-related challenges.  Maybe you are burned out. You aren't feeling like the parent you want to be,  but don't have the tools or energy to change that right now. 

You know that the pandemic will end and things will get better, they already are in many ways, but we are finding out that the stress and uncertainty of the pandemic has taken a toll on our children and youth.

We have heard our families - you want to help your kids manage their concerns, you want to make parenting easier.   You want to get through this time stronger, with more tools in your parenting toolbox and a stronger relationship with your kids. You want to look back on this pandemic as both a time of challenge and also a time of growth and transformation... but you aren't quite sure how to do that, yet.

Testimonial

Laura, primary school teacher and mom of 2

Every parent I have spoken to is or has dealt with parenting burnout at some point over the past year. Many working parents are now trying to do the impossible of working from home at the same time trying to parent their children, homeschool and keep the household running smoothly. This is a practical course with easy to implement strategies that can help parents find a proper balance and continue to live happy lives during the pandemic

Testimonial

Robyn, mom of 2

I think all the modules were really clear and it was a nice mix of explanation, research, and practical ideas on how to incorporate these practices into daily life. [...] We are definitely going to work on bringing some of the new ideas into practice in our house.
