Dr. Gene Beresin joined Matt Gurney on Mornings on Canada Talks, Sirius XM Canada Talks, on Tuesday, September 15, 2020.


Schools are opening up across Canada and the United States. Whether in-person or remote, parents have a lot of concerns for their kids this year, like coping with uncertainty and dealing with technical challenges. But school is as much about social-emotional learning and practicing how to function in the real world as it is anything else. For many parents, this is what they worry they can’t replicate.

Dr. Gene Beresin joins Matt Gurney on ‘Mornings on Canada Talks’ to go through some of these concerns. They talk about using different ways to connect socially, and ways to be adaptable and flexible no matter what form of school your child has. Also, how to prepare and take care of yourself if we’re in this for a long haul, including monitoring for any gaps in your child’s development, so you can help them to catch up later.
