A prolonged period of social isolation and home schooling upended our children’s worlds, and children and parents alike face myriad challenges as we begin to emerge from the pandemic. The Mental Health Task Force is pleased to offer a presentation on post-pandemic parenting led by our speaker Karis Murray, Director of Ministry at Grace Based Families, and a member of Saint Barnabas. She is the author of Grace Based Discipline, and she lives in Scottsdale with her husband, Mike, and two teenage daughters.
