Belmont Public Schools, in Collaboration with McLean Hospital, Present: Parenting in the Time of Coronavirus – Pre-Recorded Webinar

As part of a partnership with Belmont Public Schools, the McLean Hospital School Consultation team has recorded two webinars that focus on helping parents navigate challenging COVID-19 circumstances. 

One video is geared toward parents of elementary school-aged children and the other video is geared toward parents of middle and high school-aged teens. The videos have some overlapping content, although the examples provided are age-specific. Please see below for a more detailed description.
