Another week has passed as we have bunkered down in our isolation bubbles. We hope you are doing ok. We just want to give you some snippets from a couple of articles we felt are very helpful.

Our kids just don’t need us, they seem to need more of us. Many kids are acting out, abandoning the routines they already had, dropping naps, doing less except for jumping on top of their parents which is happening more.
