Parenting Moments
presented by Healthier Urban Families at Wayne State University
August 2020
Well, it's that time of year again! Trying to enjoy the last month of summer with the anticipation of the new school year! However, rather than kids and parents being excited for the new school year, we're all challenged with many unknowns. Parents are having to make tough decisions and navigate our new norm and thrive. I hope that you find this information helpful.
