During a conversation with a colleague recently, we were consulting on one of her students, and she began to discuss how the parents of her students were reacting to the new school-at-home life. (Thanks, Preety!)
As we continued to discuss the challenges of trying to balance doing our jobs and support families without overwhelming-as she called it- “parental capacity.”
Wow, it hit me in the face. I was working SO hard to give my parents all the “things” they could do to support their child who stutters, and to be a consistent and stable force in an uncertain time, I forgot that they may not want as much as I was sending their way!
Three other words from my conversation with Preety: Let's make our interactions...

Big sigh, step back, and here is what came from that discussion. Obviously, this is not an all-inclusive list of resources for parents. It is a great start/continuation of resources, with a friendly suggestion to present them to parents in deliberate, slow, and steady bits.
We hope they are helpful and we will continue to add resources on our Practical Thoughts Blog, our YouTube Channel, our free Practical Tips Handouts and Videos, and on social media (Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter).
