Parenting in extraordinary times

Posted in Feed Play Love.

Even before the coronavirus pandemic, it could be argued that we are parenting in extraordinary times.

The rapid pace of technology, the so-called ‘intensification’ of parenting and the demands of juggling work and family life make this point in time a unique one in which to raise a family. Throw in a global pandemic and you have all kinds of demands on parents.

Eloise Rickman is a parenting educator who responded to the pandemic by writing a book, Extraordinary Parenting. Eloise explains why she thinks parenting is a radical act, and how we can all cope in uncertain times.
