The quarantine-mentality isn’t going away anytime soon. Even after our kids are able to walk the halls of their schools again, the effects of such a lengthy isolation will linger. Does your daughter struggle with fear or anxiety around re-entering her normal life? She’s not alone.
Scripture reminds us that Christians are called to live in community. While virtual connection doesn’t always satisfy the basic need for human interaction, it’s a start. Look for ways to connect your daughter with members of her faith community, like creating a podcast-listening club or joining a video-based Bible study series.
The easiest way to shift away from the fear and anxiety that comes from isolation is to serve others. Start the re-entry process with a service project, you’ll be surprised how much comfort it brings!
