Listeners Ask:  Meltdowns, Anxiety And Depression in Kids

In this parenting podcast, Lynn Lyons answers listener questions about meltdowns and anxiety and depression kids facing the stresses of 2020.

This has been a crazy 2020. I mean, things were changing month by month, then week by week now, day by day, and what I'm hearing and perhaps what you're experiencing as parents is that kids are feeling more emotional. Maybe you're seeing an uptick in their anxiety, they're a little more withdrawn, more depressed, maybe there's an increasing feeling of anger or fear or frustration about what's going on in the world with the virus and with the protests.

So today, we're going to take questions from you, the listeners, about the things you're seeing emotionally in your kids and what we can do to help as we try and navigate what continues to be such a tricky time. Lynn answers five questions from members of our Facebook group. And we discuss our next episode on ways to make your summer still memorable with several ideas for socially distanced family fun.
