Confident Pandemic Parenting

The pandemic has drastically impacted how we parent—from relaxed rules around screen time to concerns about our children’s social and emotional health and worries over remote schooling. Find support, get guidance from UW experts and incorporate habits to keep your family emotionally healthy and feeling connected.

The Whole U has created free and accessible online resources to help you achieve your goal!
Content will be added as recorded.

Microsoft Teams group. Join our group on Microsoft Teams in our own dedicated space to share resources, reflections, connect, and more. Joining our ‘team’ on Microsoft Teams is optional and will be a space to discuss what we learn throughout the 90 days in a more ‘social-media-esque’ format. Note: This space is only open to those in our group who are UW-affiliated (student, employee).

Early learning enrollment: is the wait over?

Did your family postpone enrolling a little one in child care due to COVID-19? You are not alone! Enrollments at child care centers across the country dropped during the early months of the pandemic but are on the rise. With vaccinations underway, you may be looking forward to enrolling your child in during the new year.
