Managing Trauma as a Family 

Witnessing a traumatic event that threatens the life or security of a loved one can be traumatic. Like natural disasters, pandemics can be a source of extreme stress and trauma for children and adults alike. In fact, it is likely that the stress adults feel as a result of this coronavirus crisis will be mirrored in their children. So, how do we begin to recognize trauma not only in ourselves, but also in our children and put in place practices and routines to overcome it? To answer this question, it is important to understand how stress and trauma show up across different age-groups. View our video to better understand how to overcome stress and trauma as a family.

Coping and Managing Stress 

Children look to their parents for guidance, so modeling the right ways to cope with and manage stress is important. Part of that is understanding and implementing the best ways to deal with stress, as well as talking with kids about the wrong ways to deal with it, such as drug use and underage drinking. Our Coping and Managing Stress resource offers helpful advice and information, including the CDC’s recommendations and tips for coping with stress as well as how to set boundaries for your children.
