Early research on the health effects of the pandemic go far beyond COVID-related illness. An epidemic of stress is also taking place among parents, according to experts.
Sixty-three percent say the pandemic made the 2019-2020 school year extremely stressful for them, according to an August survey conducted by Harris Poll on behalf of the American Psychological Association.
In the same survey, 77% of parents of 8- to 12-year-olds said that uncertainty about the 2020-2021 school year was causing them stress.
News 12's Elizabeth Hashagen was joined this morning by Dr. Lucy McBride and Dr. Liz Matheis to discuss how to balance work, remote learning and other demands.
