The following link is a great article and a MUST READ for PARENTS OF YOUNG CHILDREN about wearing face masks.
"Are you happy or sad? How wearing face masks can impact children’s ability to read emotions"
A great way to get kids to understand empathy and be more empathetic to one another.
"The work the world is doing right now to change the way we relate to one another is deep, meaningful, and challenging work. To be able to step into the shoes of someone that comes from a different race, ethnicity, or walk of life takes courage. It takes intention. This work can start at a young age."

Here are some GREAT BOOKS to help you manage some of the everyday battles you might be having! YOU ARE NOT ALONE! You might be thinking, "I don't have time to read a book now", but reading a little each day (even 15-20 minutes) can get you into a positive mind-set for the day ahead.
