Oh. Hi Change. You are still here. First it was alert levels, then traffic lights, now management phases. If there’s one thing that’s remained pretty constant in our response to Covid, it’s been change. In fact, change has become like that person who comes around to your house and just does not pick up on the hints that you would like them to leave. But it looks as if change is not going to change, so it might be better to offer it a blanket and get used to it sleeping on your couch for the next wee while.
Most of us can’t help but wonder about how our kids are coping with this state of flux. It’s unsettling for us grown-ups, so it will be no surprise if our tamariki are feeling unsettled too. However, kids don’t always display their frustrations and anxieties in the same way as grown-ups.
