Our guest this episode is Krystel Reierson. Reierson is the curriculum and events manager for Life Time Kids, which provides health-focused and educational events, classes, camps, and other programming to children. She’s a mother to three kids, ages 12, 9, and 3.
COVID-19 is a huge topic in any household, and a challenging one to address with children. Reierson offers advice for how to speak about it in a way that kids understand, but that also helps them to feel safe and understood.
Families are spending perhaps more time than ever together right now. Many parents are having to work full-time, as well as maintain a household and assist with distance learning. How can we find balance and time for all of it?
As challenging and unfortunate as this pandemic is, one of the silver linings is that it presents us with an opportunity to connect with our kids and make it a positive experience for them.
It’s important for our physical and mental health to get outside at least once a day, or more if we’re able. Reierson shares some ways to safely spend time outdoors as a family.
In spite of our current circumstances, Reierson has been inspired by how she’s seen her community come together.
