How can you be a good parent in this stressful and unprecedented time?

Never before in our lifetime have we experienced something akin to the COVID-19 crisis.

Things are changing so rapidly. Every day brings new recommendations, mandates, and therefore new challenges.

Suddenly, we are thrust into a situation with little or no preparation nor experience.

Some of us are working from home and caring for our children at the same time. Maybe we’ve lost our jobs, or our partners have.

You may be worried how you’re going to manage all these rapidly changing conditions while remaining calm and centered for your children.

You may also be wondering how to help your children deal with their OWN anxieties and fears. They may be out of school, unable to play with their friends, unable to visit their grandparents or extended family. They worry that we’ll get sick. They may also be bored, restless, angry, confused…

If you co-parent, you may be facing new pressures or conflicts with exes who are being difficult.

You’re uncertain, emotionally wobbly, stressed to the max!

You may be asking how you can possibly do everything you need to do right now.

The answer is, you can’t.

None of us can.

This Is Not the Time to Take the World On Your Shoulders Or Beat Yourself Up

You don’t have to figure all this out on your own. You don’t need to get down on yourself because you’re not doing enough or because you aren’t the “perfect parent” right now.

Self-compassion is KEY right now.

If you can be more realistic about your own expectations of yourself and your kids, you’ll actually get through this crisis stronger, not weaker.

Your children don’t need you to be perfect, but they do need you. If they’re younger, they are looking to you for assurance that they’re safe and loved. If they’re older, they may not admit they need you, but they do—now more than ever. They need you to listen without judgment, to encourage them to be resourceful and creative.

No matter what age they are, your children need you to be the Captain of the Ship: The grown-up in charge, the calm, centerted, supportive parent at the helm, navigating through the uncharted waters of this coronavirus crisis.

They need you to be present with them, so they feel heard and understood. They need you to be a role model of calm, so THEY can relax.

With everything going on, and everything on your plate, you may be wondering HOW? How can you be the parent you want to be, and the parent they need you to be right now, when so much is uncertain in the world and in our personal lives?

That’s where I can help.

Expert Guidance to Show You How to Be the Calm, Supportive and Loving Leader Your Kids Need During This Stressful Time

As a licensed marriage, family and child therapist, I’ve been showing parents how to improve their relationship with their children for decades.

I teach a non-traditional, counter-intuitive approach to parenting that creates a closer and stronger relationship with your child, even (and especially) during a crisis.

While it’s true that all of us are being thrust into uncharted waters, there are certain guiding principles that always work in parenting: patience, compassion, and confidence.

In my 1-hour video program, Parenting Through The Corona Crisis, I’ll show you how to be the calm, supportive, loving leader to your kids through the ups and downs of this unparalleled situation of the worldwide pandemic of COVID-19.

You’ll get practical tips on how to help your child move your child through her emotion, anger, or disappointment about what’s happening.

You’ll also get strategies and guidance about how to manage your own emotions, alleviate your fear and worry and feel calmer and more grounded, so you can be more present for your children.

You’ll learn how to turn the obstacles related to being homebound into opportunities for your children to be more creative and expressive.

In Parenting Through The Corona Crisis, you’ll also get answers to these questions and more:

  • What’s the #1 thing parents need to remember to do right now so their children feel safe and loved?
  • How do you handle your own feelings of anxiety about what’s happening?
  • How do you talk to your kids about what’s happening with the coronavirus crisis in an age-appropriate way that doesn’t promote more anxiety?
  • How can you help your kids cope with their big feelings of anxiety, anger, or sadness?

  • Are there warning signs that your child isn’t coping well? Especially if they won’t share how they feel with you?
  • At what point should you seek outside help if you suspect your child isn’t doing well, emotionally?
  • Is it helpful or appropriate to share how you’re feeling about what’s happening with your child?
  • What’s the biggest mistake that parents make that compel children to hide their thoughts and feelings?
  • What if you don’t feel cut out for teaching your kids, or your children are resisting your attempts at being their teacher?
  • How do you motivate your child to keep up with their assignments?
  • How can you set boundaries with your child around screen time?
  • How do you manage if you’re working full-time and having to juggle child care and homeschooling? Is there a way to stay sane through it all?
  • How do you handle co-parenting and shuttling kids between households, especially if the other parent isn’t practicing social distancing or isn’t able to do, or interested in, homeschooling?
  • What creative, fun activities can you do with your child when you’re stuck at home?
  • What are some simple tools parents can turn to in order to instantly feel calmer if things get chaotic or stressful?

These Are Demanding Times for Parents, But We Can Get Through This Together and Become Even Better, Stronger, and More Resilient

These are demanding and distressing times. We are being asked to make sacrifices and do things we’ve never done before, such as work while trying to parent and be a teacher. Or staying isolated at home in order to help keep our families and our communities safe.

Mother and children sitting together

We’re scrambling to develop a level of flexibility and resilience that most of us didn’t even witness in our own families growing up. We aren’t even sure if what we’re doing is enough or if we’re being “good” parents.

You’re here. You are looking for guidance. That says a lot about you as a parent!

Listen, we don’t need to do this alone. We can’t do this alone.

Let me show you how to be the Captain of the Ship during this storm. You can be the parent you want to be even in this stressful time, even with everything on your plate, without driving yourself (or your kids) crazy or feeling overwhelmed. My Parenting Through the Corona Crisis video program will show you how.

I believe we can and WILL get through this together. And we’ll come out of it stronger and better than ever.

Warmly,

Susan Stiffelman
