Editor's Note

January/February 2021
Part of honoring our founder and longtime editor, Rich Simon, who passed away in November, has been to complete this issue, which explores how our current pandemic reality is affecting kids and their caregivers. As we crafted this issue together throughout the fall, we often wondered whether the challenges of 2020 would still feel relevant as 2021 arrived. Sadly, many of the questions our authors explore have become even more pressing now. 

Will the crisis we’re grappling with spur us to develop new approaches for supporting anxious kids, underserved kids, and overwhelmed schools and parents? Can we create more effective ways to help families? These challenges might seem overwhelming, but as Rich regularly reminded us, we don’t need to come up with all the answers: what’s important is that we keep asking the questions.
