These are stressful times indeed. As parents, we are overwhelmed with sheltering our entire families in place as well as myriad other stressful circumstances (groceries, bills, jobs and so much more). Likewise, our teens are feeling a lot of stress and need our help adjusting to this “new normal” that is certainly anything but.
“I know most adults have tons of questions, so I have to think that teens have just as many – if not more,” says Beth Hail, Regional Vice President of Centerstone. “That’s why it’s so important to talk to them and ask them what they’ve heard and what other questions they have. This situation is changing daily, so we all need to be flexible and try to stay as calm as we can, for ourselves and for our families.”
Check out these tips for talking to your teens about Coronavirus:
If you are in crisis, please call our crisis line, call 911 or visit the nearest emergency room.
