Pandemic Parenting Exchanges (PPE)

“We’re with you. We didn’t sign up for 2020 either. As two psychologists, scholars, and moms, we’re here to share science-based research to help all who care for kids navigate this pandemic, together. Join us for bi-weekly Pandemic Parenting Exchanges on Zoom with expert and guests. Just as health care workers need their PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) to stay safe from viruses while on the job, our “PPE” offers science-based knowledge, experience, and resources to help you cope during the pandemic.” www.pandemic-parent.org
