When a global pandemic was declared, Arkansas children and teens were forced to lock down, enduring social isolation, and in some cases economic distress, family sickness and death. And with the pandemic persisting due to masking and vaccine resistance, Arkansas youth continueto face certain obstacles, which may result in anxiety, depression or acting out. Glenn Mesman, Ph.D, a licensed child and adolescent clinical psychologist and Associate Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences provides guidance on "pandemic parenting."
