Bonus: Alone Together: Sheltering in Place with Children
March 26, 2020
It’s been two weeks since the coronavirus pandemic has turned Laura and Shanna’s lives upside down, and the spread of COVID-19 has shut down schools, workplaces, and all non-essential businesses in Los Angeles, where Shanna and Laura live, and in part three of their “Momming During Coronavirus” bonus series, they come to you in real time to give an update on how they are dealing with the upheaval. They also interview Ayelet Marinovich, founder of Learn With Less, about how parents can interact with their babies and toddlers during this challenging time with what they already have. They also share several BFPs that have arisen amidst the chaos of the last week.
