This pandemic has robbed our children of having social interactions with their friends. In the age of practicing social distancing, it is important as parents to help our kids cope and adjust to this unfortunate situation. In order to cope, in our household, we allow our 9-year-old daughter to FaceTime with her friends from school and with her cousins. They also play games together virtually. Being able to have these virtual playdates have been helpful for our daughter. Just because children can’t be with their friends in-person, doesn’t mean they can’t at all.
