As we are working hard to navigate the situation during this unprecedented pandemic, we are here for you and continue to care for your children. Whether it is during a crisis or simply for a well visit, we love caring for your families and helping others day after day. During this time, we have also spent countless hours with our families and have had time to reflect on the values that are important to us. We have spent our careers doing it, but do our kids have this same desire to help others? We were touched by the kindness stones that were delivered to our door at Bay Street Pediatrics this week. It brightened our day during this time of stress and uncertainty. Let’s show our kids the importance of doing these random acts of kindness. As we are practicing social distancing, we can get creative in ways in which we can help others. Your child can call up a friend to see how she is doing, write a letter to the elderly in nursing homes or drop food at a neighbor’s doorstep. These acts can help maintain the personal connections that we may be missing right now. In addition, as you clean out your closets, save the clothing, books and toys to donate when you are able. Buy gift cards to local restaurants and stores to use at a later date. If we can perpetuate the kindness, we will all get through the rough times much more easily.
