The Impact of COVID on BridgeWay Families - Survey Results

May 28, 2021

As you look at these results please realize that you’re not alone! None of us was prepared for the impact of this pandemic. Being a parent is hard; being a parent during the pandemic is even harder.

You said you feel isolated and frustrated:

We’re going to add extra time to some programs and a specific parents only chat time so that you can
connect. Starting June 7 we will be adding 15 minutes to each of the following programs so parents can stay and
chat:

Parent’s only chat beginning June 16th 1:30pm-2:30pm. This parent-led discussion will help parents connect with one another to share their joys and frustrations of parenting through the pandemic.

We’re planning an online social opportunity for parents and if you have any suggestions please contact us at [email protected] with Social Night for Parents in the subject line.
