As the new school year has started and we are about a month or so in, many of us find ourselves in a similar scenario as last fall - do our kids need to wear a mask at school? Many school districts around the country have approached this in very different ways. With these recommendations have come a loud voice of people who are strictly opposed to all forms of mask wearing; especially in our kids.
Today's episode is NOT about the science or arguments for or against mask wearing. It is about how our BELIEFS about wearing a mask may be significantly affecting our children's psyche. Listen in as I talk about how we may be directly and indirectly increasing their anxiety and stress just by being strongly vocal about this topic.
