Parenting & Relationships
 

April 3, 2020

 

Something comforting is emerging as social distancing stretches into a fourth week (or is that fifth? Fiftieth?). Expressions of community spirit are evident across the country. Virtual dating seems to be more respectful. Teachers are yearning to reach out to students. Legion volunteers and supermarket workers are supporting seniors, who are rightfully wondering if they could be abandoned. As we continue to cover the pandemic’s impact on relationships we value, please e-mail to let us know what you’d like to see more of in the coming weeks. – Mason Wright
