Let's talk about the children and Covid!.
Having just spent 2 months with my great grandson, I learned much about his fears. I can't imagine what is going through his mind on a daily basis, but I know it's paramount in his mind. How do you deal with those fears without creating more?
We have, for the past 4 years, gone swimming in the condo pool. For 3 days while I was there, he didn't want to swim. I finally convinced him it was safe, but the fear was there.
Now imagine what he feels about school!
Imagine how all the children feel being forced to attend school in the middle of a deadly pandemic!
Fortunately he attends a small private school, where he has been since he was 1, but that doesn't eliminate his fears. Now picture children attending public schools. I know I would be frightened!
I don't know what the answer is, I just know the fear is there and affecting them in ways we don't know yet. So bear with them and listen to them.
Thanks to all and may peace find it's way to your doorstep!
