Lauren Moberg

Brittany Mikelson

I am so worried about my families who experience abuse or struggle to exhibit love and warmth in the home. Any advice on how to support the kids who might not have a lot of hope during this time for their own family? Or maybe they are slumping into a deeper depression due to family stress?
Lauren Moberg
55:06
Yes a copy will be available after for viewing. We will send out a link by email and it will be posted to our website.

Learning=sense of mastery
ChoiceTA
01:00:25
I have told parents this is new to all of us, and we are all adjusting. Right now we want to do projects on things they like. And use what they do to earn credit
julie friday
01:03:47
I read an article on how it is GOOD for children to be bored. They need to learn to use that time to become CREATIVE. Parents should not be there to entertain their children. The children can use this boredom time to daydream and....just enjoy the moment without constant input.
Jamie Hernandez
01:06:42
We have been spending as much time as possible with our kids doing what they would like to do in the house. We have done puzzles and arts and rearranged rooms and we even started making lots of treats. We also have been making videos of recipes for my school kids
Ellie-Sue Shpayher
01:06:58
Thank you so much Anne for saying that I think it's so important for kids and adults.
Judy
01:08:28
Parents also should be willing to take our advice, understand we are trying our best as well, like you said before we all are going through the same things and learning all this together... we are trying out best with what we have as well... it's hard, but harder when parents kind of blame us for school being closed, not our fault!
Ellie-Sue Shpayher
01:09:36
I love your suggestions Jamie. I have gotten my son, husband and our dog involved it with helping. Seeing my house these are things that the kids hear us talk about all the time. A plus to this is they are getting to see something that they might not typically see -silver lining
Lauren Moberg
01:17:15
Deborah we will send out certificates after by email.
Lauren Moberg
01:17:51
Of course!
Lauren Moberg
01:20:49
Ellie- The slideshow will also be sent out and Anne will be presenting at our MACMH conference coming up at the end of the month.
Brittany Mikelson
01:21:10
What if children have increased anxiety around themselves getting sick and possibly dying…what would be positive ways to have these conversations?

01:21:35
Thanks Lauren
Jamie Hernandez
01:22:33
thank you
Sara McKeever
01:24:23
If a coworker wants hours for this and watches the recording, is it possible to get CEUs?
Lauren Moberg
01:25:04
There will be no certificate given out for watching the recording after the fact.
Lauren Moberg
01:26:02
Everyone is muted :)
lindsay ashworth
01:26:21
okay this is my first zoom meeting so learning thanks
nhorner
01:29:37
But can we get CEU’s for participating in this live?
Lauren Moberg
01:29:53
Yes we will email a certificate out after to participants.
Brittany Mikelson
01:30:06
Video games = instant gratification
nhorner
01:30:16
Thank you
Yvette Turner
01:31:35
There was a time when reading was a great alone time activity. We need to encourage that and then encourage them to talk to their friends about the books that they read.
Yvette Turner
01:34:13
It took me a loooong time to figure out zoom yet we want children to learn how to be alone right away.
Shari And Barry Davis
01:34:24
What do you suggest you tell young children about the virus?
Lauren Moberg
01:35:35
That’s perfect Lindsay
Renee Karlson
01:35:38
a suggestion, I have a prek kiddo at home, and creating a visual schedule helps with routine, it's simple, we can change it with valcro stickers... we always start with teeth, brush hair, get dressed, then cartoons, prek work, outside time, etc.
Shari And Barry Davis
01:36:01
Do you think this will affect how young children feel about hugging, when this passes? Will they be afraid they will “catch” things in the future.
Renee Karlson
01:36:18
we look at her visual schedule each morning, and lay it out which helps her really feel in control of her own day
Cari
01:37:34
How do we help our children who are seniors in high school missing prom, graduation and unknown of college in the fall?
Heather Brown
01:37:41
Any suggestions on how to support caregivers/families of clients who had been receiving daily day treatment services pre-COVID or other intensive therapeutic services, already struggling with some of these basic structure and routine difficulties and emotional dysregulation daily, now managing this with their kid in the home more time than before stay at home orders. How to help them avoid crisis, essentially?
Renee Karlson
01:38:17
there's a youtube channel called Cosmic Kids Yoga and meditation that's been really helpful and great quiet "me" time we do each day.
lbauer
01:39:02
Also the app CALM has been really well received by families.
Renee Karlson
01:41:36
love CALM ... there are great breathing techniques there and meditation sounds.
nhorner
01:42:58
There was a great post by a man who was a senior during Columbine. Very inspirational to Seniors
Tracy Schreifels
01:43:23
How can we prevent a whole lot of people from ending up with PTSD from this (since we know so much more about the impact of trauma now)?
Lauren Moberg
01:43:59
We will regularly post resources and helpful articles regarding helping children, caregivers, and professionals navigate COVID on our MACMH-IEC Facebook page also!
Yvette Turner
01:44:00
The idea of researching pandemics and writing about them for student work is an excellent idea because there have been several pandemics even eg. Ebola, Swine Flu, Polio, Asian Flu, etc.
Katie Lingras
01:44:21
I've been keeping a list of free e-books about COVID and social distancing -- can be super helpful for talking with young kids. Apologies if Anne already mentioned these -- I joined a little late. The Oyster and the Butterfly, Time to Come in, Bear, Cyrus the Virus, Piggy & Bunny and the Stay-at-Home Plan, Something Strange Happened in My City, A Kid’s Book about COVID-19; you can't copy/paste from chat, so I'll put these links on my Twitter (@drkatielingras) and tag MACMH too so people can see them
Renee Karlson
01:44:44
YAY for wine delivery!
Katie Lingras
01:45:02
Also I posted this before but realized it only sent to panelists: re school/learning -- IEPs are still valid during COVID, too! If kids had an IEP to provide accommodations before, they should still be getting accommodations now (i.e. able to turn in late assignments, minimizing communication with students about late work, etc.
lbauer
01:45:42
MDE just posted a guide for parents of young children
julie friday
01:46:30
If possible, get out in nature. I've found that just taking my dog for a walk and waving to the neighbors is very encouraging!:)
Paul Davis
01:46:35
Shari and Barry Davis: I used this PBS video to inform my own kids (as well as myself). It is fantastic but probably better for upper elementary kids or older. Preview, of course. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fgBla7RepXU
Tasma
01:46:47
What advice do you have for caretakers - my dad is terminal with cancer and out of state and I am back and forth trying to work take care of the kids and be there for him as well as his time is limited
Yvette Turner
01:47:19
I like the fact that Anne stated that an Associate Superintendent from Minneapolis said that the teachers were “ENTERTAINING” students mostly! How true because you can’t expect students to learn a lot without having someone to teach them!
Lori Coughlin
01:47:34
challengingbehavior.org has a link to COVID-19 Pandemic resources that has a ton of resources for caregivers of young children and the caregivers themselves.
Lisa Larson
01:47:41
Katie Lingras- where are you going to post stories?
Lauren Moberg
01:47:42
Ranelle yes this will be recorded and emailed out and posted.
Yvette Turner
01:48:21
Are chat comments going to be sent out as well?
Yvette Turner
01:48:56
Everyone is going to end up on an IEP in the Fall 2020.
Judy
01:49:00
you can copy and past from the chat if you wanted
Lauren Moberg
01:49:06
If you click the bottom right corner (“…”) of the chat you can save the chat.
Shari And Barry Davis
01:49:16
Recommendations for books dealing with children’s nightmares?
Katie Lingras
01:49:45
the links to the stories are on my twitter which is public (I just posted) - I also tagged @MACMH so you should see if from the macmh page https://twitter.com/drkatielingras/status/1251218177180217345?s=20
Katie Lingras
01:50:20
or twitter.com/drkatielingras - it's the first tweet at the top :)
Ori Wasserburg
01:50:51
I don’t think there’s anything wrong with gaining weight and or eating more during this time, or in general! Unless that impacts our mental health.
Lauren Moberg
01:50:58
Addie- Hmm… if you have difficulty saving it I can save it and email it out after the fact.
Addie Smith
01:51:36
yes please, thank you Loren. I’m on my phone so I’m not sure if that is the difference.
Lauren Moberg
01:51:45
That could be- no problem!
Jamie Hernandez
01:51:51
I can’t save the chat
Tracy Schreifels
01:51:52

Natalie.Jones

I took pics of the chat to save some of the information. Thank you Anne!!
Katie Lingras
01:53:10
THANK YOU for distinguishing collective trauma and PTSD!! Such an important perspective -- it isn't automatic especially for kids who are very resilient! :)
Lauren Moberg
01:53:24
We will email the recording out and it will be on our website.
Ellie-Sue Shpayher
01:53:27
I agree this Anne is such as good presenter. Please do more and more topics.
Emily Terrell
01:54:03
We've been drawing pictures to send to isolated older family to encourage connection and empathy. Everyone wins!
Lauren Moberg
01:54:16
Slides will be email too.
Angie Klinefelter
01:54:24
Thank you for all your hard work Macmh IEC and Anne. So grateful for the support!
Jill
01:54:49
My son's teacher has been giving them community service assignments each day. They have been as small as saying something nice to a family member or giving out hugs to your family members to as big as writing a letter or making a card for someone out of the house. Sending mail. It has been so cool for him. He loves these "assignments"
Ellie-Sue Shpayher
01:54:55
Our program is going to be doing a zoom snack for our 4 preschool rooms as we all interact everyday between early morning/closing room, on the playground, etc.
Kara
