YNMG & COVID: Home School

Mar 25, 2020

In episode 28, we talk to parents about what it's like to become the primary educators of their kids—and to be at home with them pretty much around the clock. And Amy Biehl High School Counselor Kathleen Moore offers wisdom and tips on working with your teen in this new world. 

Plus Albuquerque's director of Family and Community Services Carol Pierce talks about what the city's offering, including youth programming at community centers for the kids of parents whose jobs are still essential, like nurses and first responders. 

And a news update: Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham halted any medical care that people can wait on for three months without creating a problem for the patient. The idea, according to a news release, is to slow the use of personal protective gear (think: masks and gloves for physicians and nurses). 

We're keeping a complete list of the resources and volunteer opportunities that we find for each episode at bit.ly/YNMGhub. And here's what we got from today.
