After a long, enforced break, I’m (sort of) trying to get back to my normal job of counselling young adults with very mixed results!
Interestingly enough, said teens and young adults don’t seem at all phased by the Global pandemic much beyond the boring few weeks of lockdown where they were unable to see friends in person, forced to stay at home with equally boring parents with nothing to do except eat, watch TV and enjoy the unseasonably good sunshine! (Bummer!)
In most cases, the 6 month gap felt more like 6 days with most picking up where they left off.
This got me thinking…
Have we created too much support for young adults?
Do they automatically seek out support as an easy option instead of solving the problem?
Are parents who are struggling to cope, expecting schools to pick up the miracle working where they left off?
Furthermore, I like to muse on the theory that this situation will create a league of superheroes the like of which we have not seen for a generation
The Corona-Heroes! The extraordinary young adults who, despite missing 6 months of formal education managed to… dare I say it…not only survive but THRIVE!
No, perish the thought!
Sorry, I’ll be back to doom and gloom normal after a brief look at the News
