    Quarantine Catch Up With Lara & Jenn

    As we’re all learning how to navigate through a global pandemic, we wanted to share our experiences with social distancing, the joys we’ve had from this time at home and how we’ve personally been navigating the challenges of balancing parenting while staying up to date on information regarding COVID-19.
    In this episode, we talk about the biggest resources for parents during this pandemic, how it’s okay to take a step back and do less and how this is similar to what a lot of our grandparents and parents went through with the 1918 Pandemic and Great Depression.
    We also share where the Generation.Mom podcast is headed next including a short break we’re taking (and how you can stay connected with us during the break). Although we’re taking a break we are going to be re-releasing some of our very favorite episodes so you can continue to enjoy past episodes.
    WHAT’S IN THIS EPISODE: Managing the balance of parenting and learning information about the pandemic  Navigating the weight on the pandemic Resources for helping parents with their kids during this time The biggest joys they’ve had during this time at home Where Generation.Mom is headed next

Live It Well Nutrition -Katie ,

Love this Podcast!

I’ve been listening to Generation.MOM for about a year or so now and I love feeling like I’m in a room with some close friends. The way they laugh off some situations helps me perceive them light-heartedly as well, a and it’s an over-all boost to your day. I listen while stroller walking or washing dishes!! Lol
