Twenty-One Senses is proud to be participating in #GivingTuesdayNow, a global day of giving and unity that will take place on May 5, 2020 as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19. It’s is an opportunity for people all around the world to come together to focus on connection, healing, and doing good—whether it’s by picking up groceries for a neighbor, hosting virtual get-togethers, or advocating for a cause close to your heart.
We all know these past few months have been hard on everyone, and it’s been a particularly stressful time for families struggling to adapt to this new way of life.
Our mission remains true: to empower families like ours and to help them navigate typical childhood experiences, even in these very unusual and uncertain times.
To that end, Twenty-One Senses is thrilled to announce we’ll soon be launching a new service to provide parents with personalized coaching, empowering them to rise to the challenges presented by COVID-19. Working together, we’ll build strong coach-parent-child teams focused on learning, self-regulation, empathy, resilience, mindful communication, problem-solving, and self-care.
As of April 16, 26 states have either recommended or ordered schools to remain closed for the remainder of the 2019 school year. We all knew this might happen, but it still hurts. Millions of parents and children alike are feeling overwhelmed by the new schedules, roles, and responsibilities thrust upon them by shelter-in-place living and distance learning. With a lot of patience, tenacity, and deep breaths, we can emerge from this stronger and more resilient.
Stay tuned for more information on this exciting new service. And stay safe, everyone.
Due to concerns about the spreading rate of COVID-19, Twenty-One Senses will not be hosting or participating in any spring events. Sadly, this means Tuesday’s Sensory Night at Altitude Trampoline Park is canceled. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Remember, there are a few simple things you can do to protect yourself and others around you.
Practice good hygiene.
- Don’t touch your face!
- Wash your hands often with soap and water and scrub for at least 20 seconds.
- Wipe down frequently touched surfaces with a bleach or antibacterial solution.
- Cough/sneeze into your elbow or a tissue and wash your hands immediately afterwards.
Practice social distancing.
- Work or study from home if at all possible.
- Avoid any unnecessary travel, public events, and large gatherings.
- If you must go out in public, try to keep roughly six feet between yourself and others.
- Avoid shaking hands, giving high fives, or kissing on the cheek.
- Stay home if you’re feeling sick, even if your symptoms are mild.
Finally, stay calm. Your children will look to you to see how they should react.
