Families are spending much more time together now. While this poses many challenges and struggles to find some independent space and tie for ourselves, there are also silver linings from our confined time together. We have an opportunity to learn about each of our needs and to share them with those we live with or those we love.
Use mealtimes to communicate and share important feelings.
You will learn a lot about each other by asking each family member, or person with who you share a ‘virtual meal,’ to describe what might help you feel more comfortable and safer during the pandemic. This gives each of us an opportunity to express our important, personal feelings and also helps others better understand what we fear and what we need.
