Episode #227 The Developmental Impact of the Covid Years
When was the “last normal school year”? For 12th Graders, it was 9th Grade. For 6th Graders, it was 3rd Grade. For Kindergartners through 2nd Grade, NEVER! Our preK children were in the 2’s. And our Family Time children are all “Covid babies” born during the pandemic!
So, we want to know: How has the isolation, the masking, the social precautions, the talk of catching and/or spreading a virus shaped our children? Is it a short term hiccup based on changes in children’s social routines or will there be long term losses and gains that will change social and educational assumptions for a large number of children?
