Rebecca Enghauser has been honest and upfront with her children about a world now infected with confusing new realities — a global pandemic, racial unrest, public protests, police brutality and social restrictions, among other puzzling issues.
“They’ve had confusion,misperception, and of course, fear,” says Enghauser, a mom of three sons from Macomb. “We’ve had discussions as each of these issues came up and, of course, they are also receiving information fromother sources such as school, friends and social media.”
Her sons, ages 12, 17, and 22,have asked questions that most children have asked their parents over the past few months: “Will things get better? When will it all end? When can we go back to normal?”
