The announcements have started rolling in: camps are canceling or moving online. Public pools and town recreation programs will remain closed. Vacations are quickly becoming staycations. It’s a lot to take in for already-stressed out parents struggling with childcare – but there’s hope!

In this Action Network Live! webinar, Audrey Monke and Lenore Skenazy take your worries about the summer of COVID-19 and transform them into inspiration for more harmony at home. Audrey and Lenore bring sanity and clarity to this uncertain summer, and offer easy, practical ways to create more happiness and connection in your family.
