COVID-19 & Youth, Mother’s Day and Feel Like a Kid Again

COVID-19 & Youth, Mother’s Day and Feel Like a Kid Again

COVID-19 & Youth, Mother’s Day and Feel Like a Kid Again 2121 1414 AEPC Health
As COVID-19 continues to impact Americans’ daily lives, people seek to maintain some sense of normalcy or to establish a “new normal.”  New activities at home are discovered, and once forgotten pastimes revived. Visiting with family and friends now often takes place via an electronic platform rather than over a meal. Yet amidst all of changes and challenges brought on by COVID-19, many will celebrate Mother’s Day this Sunday – although likely in a different way than in prior years.

The articles for this Weekend Reading series provide information about the impact of COVID-19 on youth, including an emerging concern that cases of a new pediatric multi-system inflammatory syndrome may be related to the novel coronavirus.  Take time to check out the Remembering Mom as well as Feel Like a Kid Again sections!

I hope you enjoy exploring the following:

  • Mother’s Day 2020
  • Washington Post: Mother’s Day Essay – After the Cure, My mother’s childhood bout with polio paralyzed more than her body. I’ve spent much of my life trying to understand that paralysis

3. Feel Like A Kid Again – “Be happy for no reason, like a child. If you are happy for a reason, you’re in trouble, because that reason can be taken from you.”― Deepak Chopra

Stay well!
