Resources for parents with ME during COVID-19

Categories: Uncategorized

Parents with ME have had to learn to be creative and flexible in their parenting.This will be key in responding to parenting during a pandemic. We have taught our children to wash their hands in hopes of avoiding seasonal illness. We have managed school holidays and cancelled plans. We can teach a master class in social isolation. However, we all will face some new challenges as well. The childcare services we employ might not be available. Our own personal caregivers might be unable to visit our homes. Many of us will be adding teacher to our role as parent as we switch to learning at home. 

In order to support the parents in our community, we have started the collection of resources below and we will continue to update it with ideas from the community.
