While leaders discuss the timing and phases of ending the quarantine shutdown, Americans are impatiently waiting to be released from their homes and get on with their lives. However,
psychological experts are warning that if this is done too quickly, a societal grief could be
triggered. They believe we have all experienced loss and we must allow ourselves time to
grieve. We have indeed lost our freedom and our normal way of living, but many people
have lost loved ones, and millions have lost their jobs because of COVID-19.
As parents, guardians, and educators we must remember children follow our lead. Therefore, we are pleased to share emotional and social learning resources to support you and the children within your care.
