On the first episode of Coming Back Better, Paul Deger and Marjorie Morrison discuss how the pandemic transformed the lives of families with small children. You may think, “I know about that; I experienced it firsthand,” or, “I don’t have young children.” But by taking the time to reflect on the impact of the pandemic, we can see all of the shared challenges we have to overcome and learn more about the resources we need to move forward.

“Parenting is walking around with your heart outside your body” - Dr. Jennifer Cruz

Paul and Marjorie are joined by three experts in this episode, Dr.Cruz, Dr. Glasofer and Dr. Rogers. Each expert discusses different subjects such as nutrition, resilience, behavior, and many more.
