Going Back To School

Updated: Oct 21, 2020

Coronavirus seemingly came out of nowhere. Although surely we have all pondered about a global outbreak, it probably never translated over into our minds as a reality. It would have been hard to imagine the lasting havoc it would wreak into every facet of our lives. Who knew the most underrated emotion to come out of this would be boredom? Naturally, fear and anxiety were to be expected in copious amounts. In fact, how we imagined it probably aligned a lot more with action-packed zombie apocalypse movies, which have no shortage of terror. New questions from the government and CDC pop up every day as we move deeper into this new reality, each one posing obvious safety risks on the surface, and moral debates underneath.


“Should the kids go back to school?” Is arguably one of the most controversial.

Regardless of where you stand politically, the anxiety millions of kids are feeling is undeniable. The recurring themes in the general media are relentless and social media only amplifies these.


I am a well-adapted adult with a neuropsychology degree and even I had an extremely hard time first navigating the barrage of information social media was spitting out. Needless to say, I cannot imagine how a child feels at this time.
