Why Your Child Needs a Therapist This Fall
COVID-19 has ravaged our world. In New Jersey alone, more than 184,000 cases of coronavirus have been recorded, leaving more than 14,000 people dead. While very few of these deaths have been our children (less than 0.4%,) our youths and community are still suffering in countless and terrible unforeseen ways (1).
Isolation, unemployment, and fear has gripped families in our state for months, leaving us tired, frustrated, and anxious. With the end of summer and the beginning of school fast approaching, parents and children are being thrown into a whole new dilemma. While parents ask themselves questions regarding the safety of their children and whether they can afford keeping them home, children face their own mental crises.
