March 2020: Unpredictable times due to the Covid-19 pandemic had just begun, and parents were looking for guidance and reassurance.
For Our Kids' first virtual webinar featured Dr. Nicole Racine and parents across the country in a discussion about coping and resilience for children and parents during COVID-19. Dr. Racine addressed common stress responses in children resulting from social distancing and home isolation and responded to parents' questions about reducing stress and promoting mental well-being - for themselves and their children.
