Theme: Back-to-School
Though school is about to be back in session, families have enormous questions about the 2020-2021 school year right now: What will it look like if/when children are physically in school? And what will it mean for family life if/when children are at home for hybrid or remote learning?

Despite these looming questions, there's a lot we can do to bolster our children’s feelings of confidence and security as they head into a new year. Here are ways to create and practice routines, cope with anxieties and emotions, and find ways to learn at home.
