Bonus episode: The calendar says it’s Back to School season, but what does that mean in these times of COVID-19? We have two doctors on this episode of ParentingU—both pediatricians and both parents—Dr. Christopher Funes and Dr. Michael Bolton. How can parents feel confident about children going back to school? What precautions make the biggest positive impact on children’s health? How can families assess their own comfort level for this transition time? These questions and more are answered on the show.
