Parents and caregivers in Oregon have had a long year with most children attending school online. You scrambled to find care for children while leaving home to do critical front-line jobs or struggled to find time and space to work from home while still supporting children’s learning. Many of you lost jobs or lost homes. Sadly, some lost loved ones.

Amidst a time when change is the only certainty, you are doing your best to provide stability for your children. Many of you are putting all your effort into getting through each day.

As we begin to open more schools to both in-person and hybrid education it’s helpful to remember that change can be difficult and may provoke anxiety. Small things can go a long way towards taking care of yourself and making best decisions for children and family.

Thinking of concrete methods of how to get support and lower risk can help to manage anxiety. Slowing down can give you a break from stress and build resilience. It also is helpful to remember that you or your children might not be ready to change your school routine. It’s okay to wait until you are.

You are not alone. The Safe + Strong Helpline at 1-800-923-HELP (4357) can help you find the resources you need. Help is free and available 24/7. To learn more, you can also visit safestrongoregon.org.

You should still get the COVID-19 vaccine even if you’ve had a previous infection. The vaccine acts as a booster that strengthens the immune response.

PRO-TIP! If you have to tell your child anything more than 10x, there's either a learning gap, an unmet need, a miscommunication, or an external stressor that's creating the inability to listen. Reframing is ESSENTIAL to this conscious parenting thang!
