Parenting is hard, and the stress of a global pandemic can make the job even more difficult. Having to juggle distance learning, interpersonal relationships, and work can take a toll on a mom’s mental health. Yenny Garcia, a Richmond mother of two, stresses the importance of finding support during these trying times. “Most of the time people do want to help; they just don’t know how,” Garcia said. “And so moms need to know that there is support for them, and most of the time people are willing to offer their support in ways they can and [mothers] just need to say what they need.” To find ways to access these resources, visit Richmond Pulse.
