Social connections are especially challenging for families right now – but remain key to reducing stress. As one of the five protective factors for Strengthening Families, it’s still important to know that you are not alone out there as a parent. Virtual opportunities are popping up every day, and we’d like to share a couple to get you started.
Circle of Parents
You’re only human and humans are social creatures, and we’re happiest and healthiest when we regularly spend time with others. Connecting with other people can reduce stress and help you remember others care about you. Right now, we need to do that online.
Join other parents and caregivers all around Colorado online to share support, tips and advice or just talk. Vent, cry, and laugh, and joke, and find out how other parents are navigating this new world. Talk about:
- Activities to do at home with children
- How to maintain self-care and self-kindness
- Resources and tips to stay healthy and safe
- How to talk about what’s going on with your children
- … whatever you want to talk about!
