Insights Into Teens: Episode 68 "Making the Grade during COVID-19"

Joseph and Madison Whalen

The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic stretches well beyond the devastating impact of the illness itself. The circumstances of quarantine and isolation have far reaching impacts on every facet of life as we know it.

This week we explore the impact on teens and their ability to excel academically. Madison had a few surprisingly low grades that left her concerned and a bit shaken. Blaming herself for failure she was pretty hard on herself for the grades.

We explore the impact that our current conditions play in our teens academic experiences. We look at how our school systems were ill prepared for a massive home schooling push and how our teachers and administrators have done the best under very difficult circumstances.

We'll also look at just what the impact is to our teens. How having their entire daily routine upset and the stability and focus they derive from a regular schedule can quickly fade away in the less disciplined home schooling situation they've found themselves in.

We will also take a look at how teens can get help under these circumstances and explore options to help keep the grades up and to help keep the learning and knowledge flow moving. Everyone understands these are difficult and unusual times, but we will get through this.
