Ready to Tackle Uncertain Times!

I have SO many questions. You see, I’m a planner. I don’t do well with change, and I don’t do well with uncertainty, but I’m trying. Because what else can we do in these uncertain times?

I am sitting down to write this editor’s note during the first days of August. (We really work ahead in the magazine industry. Soon, we’ll be talking Christmas while you’re celebrating Halloween!) As of right now, we know a small bit about what back to school will look like for our children. I very much wish we knew more so we could provide specific information and tips to nervous families. But we have instead put on our happy faces and pulled up our bootstraps to do the very best we can during these times. We have asked our expert columnists to tell us how they’re feeling, what they foresee, and how to prepare for “back to school”, whatever that may look like for your family, and we are so proud of what we’ve put together for our September 2020 issue.

So let’s pretend we’re all back to school, and I’m the teacher. You can envision yourself in a classroom, or watching me virtually from the comfort of your home. I’ll ask you to turn your textbooks to the following pages and here are your assignments for the month:

Here you’ll find VERY important information about mental health help during the “echo pandemic”. What’s the echo pandemic, you ask? Read to find out!

Study Frank Emanuele’s tips for a different “back to school”. Support each other, connect with teachers, listen to your kids, and _____. You can fill in the blank by reading his article.

Do you have teenagers? Hear from Ella and Mikaeel who may be “starting high school on a low” to get an idea of what our students are going through.

This September will be one of the craziest back-to-school times of our lifetimes. But we’ve got these parents! Whether you’re choosing a home or school classroom (remember, no judgment, people!), stay safe, stay healthy, and let’s take care of one another.

P.S. With the trying times of back to school this month, let’s share some pure joy! Enter our 16th annual Captured Moments photo contest from September 9 – October 9 for a chance to see your little one on a beautiful Mom & Caregiver cover.
