How to Navigate Virtual Learning with Your Child
This post is part of a series of video conversations between CircleAround and our partners, the Boston Children’s Hospital and Center on Media and Child Health. The series is called Mondays with the Mediatrician, and the focus of the series is on media and child health — specifically, how parents are navigating this challenging time of virtual learning and young children having access to online media.
