Social Distancing

Social distancing has been so hard to explain to my kids. My oldest wants to know more information about WHY he can’t go outside and play with his friends. We are outside but away from others. I don’t want to scare my kids and I am trying hard to not watch a lot of news in front of them. I want them to feel loved, safe and happy during this time: but aware. Please reach out if you want any advice or resources. I know this is a HARD time for families: emotionally, financially, and socially. This video was easy for little ones to understand: take a look, stay healthy and safe!  ~Mrs. Bland
