What's going on currently in our country is new to everyone! We have been given recommendations by the health experts to practice social distancing. Outside of our wonderful healthcare workers, grocery store workers, essential truck drivers, pharmacies, most have been told to stay home. If you are social distancing with kids at home like I am, you may be feeling overwhelmed or burned out trying to play the role of both parent and teacher. Recently I (Johane) jokingly posted on my Facebook account that "if you see me talking to myself just know I am having a parent teacher conference" LOL (you gotta find laughter even in the hardest times). Y'all know I'm not lying though! Juggling multiple roles you are not accustomed to, with no preparation, can be trying. Most parents know that structure is important as it helps maintain some sort of sanity in our lives. Parenthood is a joy, but it also comes with challenges. Today on the podcast we have Mat Jean, LMFT, who is a father of 4 girls and a mental health professional trained in psychotherapy and family systems, here to help me mother of 4 boys answer Kim’s questions on how to calm some of the chaos when managing your kids.
Mathew Jean is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, and the owner and principal therapist of Beachstone Counseling in Pompano Beach, FL. Mathew developed the non-profit organization The Go-To Therapist because he realized that he wanted to be the therapist he needed 15-20 years ago. He also created the apparel company Sober Words with a mission of "Sending Love and Shedding Light"
