May 7 – Kojo In Your Virtual Community: Parenting During The Pandemic

By Kurt Gardinier

As we enter the second month of the coronavirus pandemic in the Washington region, many of us are still grappling with navigating new challenges and longing for our old daily routines. What used to be simple tasks — like a trip to the grocery store— now require a new approach and creative problem-solving. So it’s no surprise that the more complex aspects of our lives have now become, well, even more complex. That is particularly true for parents who are now juggling the demands of distance-learning, fighting off cabin fever and trying to keep children safe and healthy — while, for many parents, also working a full-time job.

So how are you parenting during the pandemic? What have been your breaking points? What about surprising wins? Join Kojo Nnamdi and his guests for a lively discussion on what parenting looks like in our new reality. Share your experiences and get tips from other parents on how they’re navigating these very uncharted waters.

Kojo will be joined by Meghan Leahy, certified parenting coach and Washington Post columnist, and Hillary Frank, author and creator of The Longest Shortest Time podcast. He will also be taking live questions from the audience.

Thursday, May 7, 2020 at 7:00 p.m.

To participate, we ask that you pre-register by 3 p.m. on May 7 (yes, it is free, but donations are welcomed!). All registered participants will receive an email with instructions on how to connect to our virtual event on Zoom. Register at this link.
