Tough Subjects Tackled This Week On The Parent Pod with Jacob Stapledon, Children's Cove & Amy Wyman, Good Grief Cape Cod
The Parent Pod is weekly live virtual show on Facebook (replays on YouTube, IGtv and our website) which explores local family friendly businesses, highlights local parents, discusses important topics, spreads some kindness and more!
This week we were joined by Jacob Stapledon from Children's Cove to discuss internet safety for our kids. Now more than ever kids are online now not just for virtual school but also kids are getting on social media younger than ever. In the age of Tik-Tok, Fortnight, SnapChat and Facebook when and how do we have conversations to set the limits? While the internet can be done safely it is up to us to monitor and it means we have to invest in the time to have conversations and monitor it. Jacob provides some great tips and a link for our parents and caregivers.
We also chat with Amy Wyman from Good Grief Cape Cod grief and loss for our kids and how we can have honest conversations with our kids to work through anxiety and stress during these "new normal" times. We also chatted about the loss even we ourselves are suffering as parents thru social interaction, loss of your own self time and more. It is okay to be sad and not okay with all that has gone on.
Both Jacob & Amy will return int he coming months as repeat guests to dive even deeper into these topcis!
As we move forward Cape Cod Moms will continue to help connect our families and caregivers to amazing resources and locals in our community. Each week we will go LIVE on Facebook (soon to YouTube but replays available on website and YT and Instagram) with a special guest. We will also be sharing giveaways and a cocktail and mocktail of the week brought to you by local businesses and bartenders.
