Making You A Hero To Your Family And Business

From the Yolofsky Office

We are living in strange times. A virus has

crossed international borders and created a health care crisis unlike any the modern world has seen in decades. While some people choose to point fingers of blame, it seems more folks want to help their communities. With schools canceled, businesses closed, and the nation stuck on pause, people are finding their neighborhoods anew. Recently, we have met more of our neighbors than ever before. Around our area, more people are out walking, running, biking, and staying outside. It seems that a very high percentage of people are maintaining social distance and wearing protective equipment, where necessary. We’ve also seen innovation happening at an incredible pace. Tests that used to take days will now take minutes. Restaurants are preparing meals for overworked health care providers. Education has moved to the virtual classroom.

Get your child ready for their first few nights away from home by gradually sending them out on their own. Set up an overnight stay at their grandparents’ house or with their favorite neighbor down the block. Then, get them excited about camp! Talk up all the fun things they will do, like hiking, canoeing, sitting around campfires, and making new friends. Finally, send them to camp with little mementos of home. Their favorite stuffed animal, a family photo, or even some home- cooked snacks can go a long way in helping them survive a week (or more!) away from
