Coping with Covid
How is your teen or young adult coping with Covid?
We have three young adults and one teenager.
All three boys left to do school at their respective schools although only one of them ever actually goes to campus for school related things.
One of my boys has never said the word anxiety when referring to his own emotions until this week.
I was shocked and it got me wondering how many teens and young adults are suffering because of Covid and we don’t even know it or expect it.
Now is the time to have a conversation with your kids.
Talk to them about all the things they feel like they don’t have control of.
Wearing masks to school
Doing classes online
Getting tested for Covid
Getting Mono-Yes, one of my boys has Mono
The election outcome
Having to isolate
Extra curriculars getting cancelled
Then talk to them about the things they do have control over:
How they react to everything
How much effort they put into their school
The amount of time they spend on social media
Spending time with family
Working on themselves
Planning for the future
It just is a good way for them to see that they don have control over some things in their life in a world where we feel like we are being forced into situations we don’t love.
It is not easy right now for anybody.
Especially our kids who feel very isolated and alone.
If you have a teenager or young adult who is struggling right now I can help.
Within our first session they will feel better, they will feel like they have some control over their own life and feel like they have the ability to change the things they would like to change.

Stop sitting on the fence about this.
Now is the time to get some help for your kids.
