Special Education Teacher Writes Article To Help Parents Deal With The Stress Of Coronavirus


TODAY, THE IMPORTANCE OF ASKING FOR HELP WAS STRESSED. IT HAS BEEN A STRESSFUL TIME FOR PARENTS. BRENDA WATERS SOUGHT OUT THE LOCAL DOCTOR WHO HAS WRITTEN SOMETHING OF A PANDEMIC PARENTING GUIDE. IT IS BEEN A ROUGH FEW MONTHS FOR PARENTS. ALL THE PLAYGROUNDS ARE CLOSED. DURING THIS AGE OF COVID-19, HOME IS NOW THE QUESTION. THE OFFICE AND THE CENTER OF ENTERTAINMENT. THIS DOCTOR IS A SPECIAL EDUCATION TEACHER AND CONSULTANT FOR THE WATSON INSTITUTE. SHE HAS WRITTEN AN ARTICLE CALLED US FOR FAMILIES IN A HARD TIME. WE WENT OVER A FEW OF THOSE THOUGHTS TODAY. SHE SAYS WHEN THINGS GET TOUGH, PEOPLE TEND TO WANT TO PULL IN GRIT THEIR TEETH AND BEAR IT. NOT A GOOD IDEA. SHE SAYS PARENTS NEED TO REACH OUT TO OTHER RESOURCES TO THE COMMUNITY, THE CHURCH, AND ROUTINE IS ANOTHER POINT. EVERY TEAM THAT WE LIVE OUR LIFE FOLLOWING, ALL OF US DO. OUR CHILDREN HAVE ROUTINES. WE HAVE FOR TEENS. NOW, WITH COVID, ALL OF THAT IS BLOWN OUT OF THE WATER. WE ARE SCRAMBLING TO ESTABLISH INTO ROUTINE. Reporter: DR. SCHWARTZ’S PARENTS ALSO NEED TO FOCUS ON WHAT IS MOST IMPORTANT AT THE MOMENT. AND, IF CHILDREN ACT OUT, DO NOT TAKE IT PERSONALLY, THEY ALSO ARE DEALING WITH A DIFFICULT TIME. THE NEXT ONE MAYBE A LITTLE TOUGH, AND THAT IS RELAX. WHAT DR. SCHWARTZ WANTS PARENTS TO ADHERE TO MOST IS THIS ONE. YOU ARE EVERYTHING YOUR CHILD NEEDS. YOUR CHILD IS SO LUCKY TO HAVE YOU AS HIS OR HER PARENT. YOU ARE GIVING THE CHILD ALL THE THINGS, THE LOVE, EMOTIONAL, BEHAVIORAL, ACADEMIC SUPPORT THEY NEED.
