About the Webinar
Burning out is not an overnight phenomenon. But with parents in newfound roles of educators, remote workers, and caretakers during the pandemic, the feeling of overwhelming exhaustion has become increasingly more common in parents.
It’s challenging for parents and guardians to keep their mental health insulated while balancing their caretaker role during the coronavirus pandemic.
