VIDBE-Q Volume 65 Issue 3 they wrote to the city engineer about adding painted pedestrian cross walks in heavily traveled areas near a school and that the city would go forth and add them concluding some sidewalk reconstruction with the road. All I did was help to facilitate the why and who for some of this but the family did the rest. We build families up, and breaking down barriers is important. This is where our trust is important. It's enough to say during a normal school year that we trust schools and service providers to keep our kids safe, educated, inclusive to the most extent appropriate and blending that with families during this time is definitely unique to the times. In conclusion, I'd like to think that teaching and parenting during these times have or will allow us to re-examine our relationships we build with families and the ways we establish trust so that we and the families can educate children to our fullest ability. This is hard, we are not perfect and need to accept that, but we also need to understand that families need our help. The foundation of great communication will create trust between families, case managers and all other service providers to help us all be successful moving forward.
