Kids, Decision Fatigue, and Separation Anxiety during Reopening

A video of the session can be seen here

The need to constantly make decisions, with little and confusing information, leaves us feeling depleted of energy and diminishes our decision-making abilities. It increases our sense of lack of control and anxiety. At the same time, our kids are starting to feel anxious about separating; after getting used to being by our side and knowing our very move, they’ll have to readjust to the uncertainty that comes from trusting other adults.  We’ll discuss the challenges ahead and how to prepare for them while taking care of ourselves in order to care for our children.
