Virtual. Face-to-face. Hybrid. Homeschool. Kids across the nation began this school year unlike any other. Parents may be juggling more roles than they ever had to before, and students’ learning environments may fluctuate as the pandemic waxes and wanes. This can feel overwhelming and stressful to everyone involved. Dr. Amanda Heins, supervising psychologist at Rogers’ Oconomowoc campus, shares ways parents can help their child get comfortable wherever they are learning, work through uncertainties related to their school year, and support academic success.
As we go forward, Dr. Heins reminds us to “Try to assume good intention from your child, school, and community. Each of us is navigating the best we can. Remind yourself and your child that this is a tough time for everyone. Praise their strength and resilience for moving forward as best as they can in the middle of a pandemic. If you or your child are worried about a classmate, reach out to your teacher.”
