What to do During Quarantine: A Teen Interview and a Request!

Dear All,

First, Happy Belated Mother’s Day to all the mothers the aunties, teachers, grandmothers, guardians, and all of you  that have had a hand in helping to raise a child. Thank you!

Second, while it is usually just me on the videos reflecting what I see in working with teens,I thought for a change it would be nice to actually hear from one :).

I am super impressed with this teen as she is a graduating eighth grader and would go back to school in a heartbeat…but since she can’t right now she talks about how she and her family are making the best of this time.

In the video below she reflects on screentime…citing the realities, well, for many of us:
