Have the new work and school arrangements left you wondering how you can move through the demands of the pandemic without getting overwhelmed? Do you need help in supporting your family’s social, emotional, and mental health? Are you looking for new perspectives to help you better adapt to and even grow through today’s challenges?

The Foundation for the Future of Delaware County has partnered with a generous donor and the National Resilience Institute to help Delaware County families respond to and manage challenges presented by the pandemic through a free, virtual program called Pandemic Parenting.

Pandemic Parenting offers 10 recorded modules that provide practical strategies and promote well-being in adults and children. Each module is about 15 minutes long and can be completed at your convenience. The program combines virtual learning with an interactive workbook and structured, step-by-step guidance to put strategies into practice. An online library is also included with age-appropriate activities to help your kids grow their resilience.

Delaware County parents and guardians may participate at no cost through Dec. 30. Register for the program at
