  1. Thank you for this. I love the generational perspective.

    Being almost literally on top of each other in our apartment non-stop, with four personalities expressing frustrations and big emotions in their own unique way (and sometimes at odds with others’ emotions/emotional needs) is not easy. The sensory overload, for me, feels enormous (am realizing that perhaps my pattern is to withdraw?). I am looking for ways to connect with each of my kids each day so they feel heard and seen.

    1. Thanks for your comment, Jess! Helping kids feel heard/seen during this stressful time is key, for sure. And surprise – it starts with making sure YOU feel heard/seen yourself! Great topic for a new video!

  2. Such practical advice, thank you! Our challenges are new during social distancing too, so it’s not like we have a template somewhere for how to manage this stuff. It’s hard enough to get our kids to put on shoes in the morning and now if we’re going out we need masks. My friend linked me this book which really helped with my son. We need new tools for new situations!https://www.amazon.com/Where-When-Youre-Wearing-Mask-ebook/dp/B087GHC1W4/ref=sr_1_7?dchild=1&keywords=RL+Margolin&qid=1588343513&sr=8-7

    1. Thanks for watching/commenting, Shelly! New tools for new situations is RIGHT! I’ll keep that in mind for my upcoming videos.
