Read Chapters 13 of the course text and answer the following questions:
Do you agree that children are actually “reared” in early care and education programs? Why or why not? How do the current issues with COVID-19 fit into this equation – parents having to juggle homeschooling or child care while having to work or attend school?
What do you know about negative effects that isolation can have on families? Do you feel families are more isolated in this time of COVID-19? Explain your thinking in relation to the accessibility of community resources and how families can still get the services they need when so many businesses (which may include non-profits) are physically closed.
