A: I’ve also told parents, if the kid can handle it, to make a little nest next to their desk. And in the nest is maybe the iPad, snacks, blankets and pillows, stuffed animals, Crocs — whatever they love. If they can be quiet, if they can play, we’re increasing closeness.

I’ve suggested to some parents that while they’re on Zoom to be touching the child. Which is crazy-making. But it’s less crazy-making than fighting. Because the more we push them away, the stronger they often come back.
