Advice for Pandemic Parenting of Teenagers

Day one was kind of fun. We were all a team enjoying the new normal. Day two was still okay. By day three, it all fell apart. There are too many meals and too many dishes. We have toilet paper, but how much is enough? And it looks like there’s no end in sight.

Some researchers are saying that social distancing could continue for quite a long time. I can’t envision what my life and my family’s life will look like in another few weeks, let alone months. And it seems like I’m not alone. So Your Teen set out to get as much helpful advice as possible during this trying time.

I’ve done five interviews with outstanding experts. Each one taking a slightly different parenting angle.
