NJ Parent Virtual Town Hall: Child Care And The Pandemic

This webinar was co-hosted by Advocates for Children of New Jersey and Melinated Moms to highlight the issues that parents, especially those of color, are facing during the Covid-19 pandemic. The panelists discuss new child care center guidelines, parents going back to work outside of the home, children’s mental health, and their own pandemic parenting anecdotes.
