Straining matters further, COVID-19 upended every aspect of kids’ lives—schooling, nutrition, housing, and mental health. This “new normal” is completely different from anything we have ever experienced. So how do we prepare our children for life during these uncertain times?
The Atlantic convened educators, policy makers, doctors, and more to explore practical tools for parents, caregivers, guardians, and advocates to help kids grow in positive ways. The goal is not only to set children up for future success, but to ignite a passion to help the kids of today thrive!
