We are in an unique situation and parents can’t rely on past experience to help them determine how to handle our current circumstances. Parents are having to get creative, use technology, and come up with unique ways to help their kids stay healthy and connected.

Sarah Lyons is a stay at home wife and mother of six children, including 18 month old triplets. Using creative consequences with her kids has improved their behavior and encourages healthy relationships with each other.
