Parenting Under COVID-19

Families across the globe are adapting to changes due to (COVID-19). It is important to remember that as a caregiver you are not alone in such circumstances and your feelings are normal reactions. While isolation can represent an opportunity to spend time together and develop your relationship with your children, many caregivers will be experiencing conflicting feelings and priorities, as well as practical challenges.

UNODC has been strengthening family skills through different programmes in many countries across the globe, including families living in most challenged and highly stressful settings. Relying on this experience, and in partnership with other UN agencies including WHO, UNICEF and the Partnership to End Violence Against Children, UNODC offers you this page, hosted on its flagship media platform ListenFirst, to help you as a caregiver with some tools to navigate this period.
