Crisis Parenting: Lessons in Forgiveness & Permission

Updated: May 29, 2020

Parenting during a pandemic has been hard, but I’ve learned several life lessons during this time that transcends Crisis Parenting and goes straight into the Parenting Hall of Fame. See, I work full-time as an “essential worker” so the work never really slowed down for me. I work for a non-profit as a supervisor AND I have my private practice as a therapist. If you’ve been paying attention to the news at all, you’ll know that mental health is becoming an integral part of managing COVID-19. Anxiety is through the roof! There are more people looking for services than ever before! As such, my little side hustle is quickly demanding more and more of my attention.

Then, to top it off, I write! I write parenting articles, I write parenting books, and I write fiction. Writing demands time and attention, something I have little of right now. These things aren’t new to me, just more demanding and requiring more time.
