Parenting, Grief, and Creativity in the Coronavirus Crisis
by Laura Stanfill
There’s no guidebook for parenting during a pandemic. Sheltering at home means being yourself in front of your kids–all day, every day–without much reprieve. When Laura Stanfill’s best friend was killed by the virus in April 2020, her daughters experienced her grief at close range. Over the next several months, with storytelling and art, gardening and games, Laura found her imperfect way through deep grief–just in time to weather a second major loss. SAD HOUSE offers a guide for family resilience, growth, and how small, shared joys can sustain a household in difficult times.
