Knowing what I now know about both my girls’ vulnerability to anxiety, and to what uncertainty and lack of control does to the nervous system of the one who has PDA, what on earth did the pandemic do to their perception of the world?

I don’t think we can underrate the experience this had on very young, pliable minds.
