Vikita Poindexter-CA President
23:16
Lets have some fun ladies. Blessings
Anne Pazier
24:11
Yes!
Delana Hill
29:00
Yes - Let's have fun!
Monika Moss-Gransberry
29:39
Love you Vikita. Great topic.
Hilary Lentini
29:51
we can hear you!
Deborah Snyder- NAWBO HQ
33:17
Hi Everyone! So great to be here.
Amanda Hueneke
33:21
Bless you both!
Monika Moss-Gransberry
35:53
Being authentic as kids poke their heads into your zoom calls. My grandkids are always getting curious about what I am doing.
Rikki Quintana
36:26
The challenge is multi-generational too! I spend a lot of time just being a sounding board for my daughter, whose 2nd grader is miserable and “failing” in the virtual classroom.
Monika Moss-Gransberry
37:49
I get it. My oldest grandson is super A personality type and was having a meltdown that his teachers were not answering his emails when he had trouble getting into the virtual classroom.
Monika Moss-Gransberry
38:10
Yes, "empathetic environment"
Lynne Butler
38:26
I see that some companies are allowing employees a little more flexibility in their schedules.
Monika Moss-Gransberry
39:07
yes for flexible schedules regardless of having kids. Everyone is anxious.
Rachel Kabb-Effron
39:36
I appreciate that my employees stayed with me through the pandemic so I "reward" them with flexibility.
Monika Moss-Gransberry
40:00
Hey Rachel Kabb. Definitely a good reward
Elizabeth Skibbe
40:52
I am fully authentic in supporting 2nd, 3rd, and 4th graders learning remotely. We are trying to apply grace liberally to all parties- ourselves, our teachers, our kids, as well as my clients.
Monika Moss-Gransberry
41:29
@Elizabeth I love that "applying grace liberally"
Rachel Kabb-Effron
41:33
How can schools drop the 180 day requirement to a 2.5 hour days. I have a high schooler that is being seriously shortchanged in the proposed "hybrid" model
Amanda Hueneke
41:46
That is so hard to do- trusting that they can do it.
Monika Moss-Gransberry
42:48
Well, they are not learning 6 hours a day when they are in school. There is so much time where there is just logistics happening, i.e. changing classes, breaks, lunch, PE, etc.
Lynne Butler
43:36
Allowing employees to attend meetings with out being on screen is also helpful, because there are times when kids have what I call Mommy Moments aka MM.
Monika Moss-Gransberry
45:09
I think schools haven't taken into consideration that kids don't need to be online for 6-7 hours a day. They need more breaks and physical activity in their learning.
Delana Hill
45:21
100% Monika!
Delana Hill
45:32
100% Monika
Delana Hill

Movement and creative time to play and be children are so important!
Rachel Kabb-Effron
47:20
Our HS is 2 hours in the am and 3 in the pm now. Then there are other video on tope of it. Now they are going to 2.5 in person. The constant changes are driving me nuts
Amanda Hueneke
47:24
Our school is allowing parents to choose all virtual or all in person. The problem comes with when the kids are exposed to COVID and required to quarantine 14 days if they are in person learners, and are responsible for keeping up with their assignments on their own (with possible virtual tutoring after school). How do we help our kids handle the yo-yo stress, frustration and learning gaps of moving between the two environments?
Monika Moss-Gransberry
47:56
I was on a webinar that said the childcare there are 1 slot for every 5 children who need it in ohio
Rachel Kabb-Effron
48:07
I think for that reason - to avoid the yo-yo I will keep my daughter onine
Rachel Kabb-Effron
48:34
Monica - that is crazy!
Rachel Kabb-Effron
48:42
monika
Monika Moss-Gransberry
48:43
I advised my daughter to keep my kids in online school because she works at home
Amanda Hueneke
48:49
My son was so depressed without the social aspect and struggles with staying on track in the virtual environment.
Monika Moss-Gransberry
48:54
Rachel - yes, that is crazy.

Aren't we all who are extroverts. Is he an only child?
Amanda Hueneke
50:31
No, but my oldest just graduated in June, so pretty much an only child at this point. And I feel terrible when he's up there learning by himself while we're all working in different rooms.
Rachel Kabb-Effron
51:03
i am grateful for extra curricular sports so she can decrease the human interaction anxiety
Rikki Quintana
51:15
For the youngest kids, online may be a disaster. And even in a “good” public school, the teacher is doing power points with nothing that truly engages the kids.
Monika Moss-Gransberry
52:03
I understand about school and working in the same house. My husband and I try to have lunch together and schedule time for breaks together so we are not isolated and we are adults
judy
52:31
I cant get my my video on
Rachel Kabb-Effron
52:36
We can't all work at home since the internet which is really good is not good enough. So I go to the office
Amanda Hueneke
53:14
Who should we contact to be more vocal in this area?
Courtney (Detroit)
53:39
I lost all my business during covid, and had a baby in May. I also have a 2.5 year old. my husband is back to his office and I feel so overwhelmed and like I can’t get ahead.
Rachel Kabb-Effron
54:19
I will say as Advocacy chair in my chapter, that the Advocacy committee is a good place to start being vocal
Rachel Kabb-Effron
54:49
What was your business COurtney?
Rachel Kabb-Effron
57:27
I say that 1) this will pass and 2) you are not alone
Courtney (Detroit)
57:28
Glow Social Media - social media coaching and content marketing
Amanda Hueneke

Courtney, I hear your feelings. I've been there. Feel free to reach out to me!

adults need to move too
Monika Moss-Gransberry
59:31
great idea about finding ways to move for kids
Elizabeth Skibbe
59:44
We got yoga ball seats for my kids, too. They need to be able to move even while learning.
Delana Hill
01:00:09
Right! Monika - Family workouts have become so popular and they are a great way to laugh, have fun, and stay healthy together!
Monika Moss-Gransberry
01:00:17
Like the yoga ball idea
Amanda Hueneke
01:00:34
I love the yoga ball idea!
Bill Sorenson
01:01:08
I'm a Board member at Delana's school and can vouch for her statement that Governing Boards of schools are listening and trying to work with staff to be responsive and help. We could NOT be more thrilled to have Delana on our team. She is amazing and dedicated.
Elizabeth Skibbe
01:01:19
Get the containment ring, too! ;) Less chance of rolling off…
Monika Moss-Gransberry
01:02:09
Love; "biz partnering to support parents"
Amanda Hueneke
01:02:29
I'm a sole proprietor, but what about offering a virtual tutoring service to employees' children? That would be a great perk!
Rachel Kabb-Effron
01:03:10
I offered my paralegal to bring her nephew in to the office to set up his online education
Amanda Hueneke
01:03:42
Google the glass versus plastic balls in the air analogy... I read it this morning, and I'll be applying that mentality.... hopefully help some of the anxiety.
Monika Moss-Gransberry
01:04:00
my daughter is tutoring home school and learning pods. we could bring kids together around diverse businesses

Elizabeth Skibbe
01:04:29
@Amanda - yes! That is a great example of prioritization.
Bill Sorenson
01:04:52
It is also evident how much our education system is THE primary mode of child care. Our education system is inextricably linked to our economy.
Rachel Kabb-Effron
01:04:53
We all need to plan for "what if" contingencies
Amanda Hueneke
01:05:53
YES!!!
Rachel Kabb-Effron
01:06:46
YASSS!
Rachel Kabb-Effron
01:06:54
And we are advocates!

Elizabeth Skibbe

Thank you to all the panelists! This topic is HARD and so topical for many WBO’s this year.

01:09:27
I really appreciate the brainstorming around the topic.
