    2. Navigating the Intimacy Versus Isolation Development Stage

      Navigating the Intimacy Versus Isolation Development Stage

      According to Erikson’s Stages of Psychosocial Development, a theory developed by psychologist Erik Erikson in the 1950s, there are eight stages of psychosocial development: trust versus mistrust, autonomy versus shame and doubt, initiative versus guilt, industry versus inferiority, identity versus confusion, intimacy versus isolation, generativity versus stagnation and ego, and integrity versus despair. All eight stages reflect how social conflicts can impact growth and development, but intimacy versus isolation, the sixth stage, is a particularly rocky transit with far-reaching implications on our love life. It tends to occur between ages 19 and 40 as we form serious romantic relationships. And, as anyone who has tried online dating likely knows, developing intimacy in a relationship is no small task—and successfully doing so is key for both happiness and staving off effects of isolation.

      Kids may be resilient but are still dealing with stress and anxiety in the COVID era | SteamboatToday.com

      Kids are handling the strange new world of going to school during a pandemic well, said Lindsey Kohler, a licensed social worker and student family advocate for the Hayden School District.

      There’s some resistance to things like wearing masks, she said, but students are mostly going through the day-to-day routine without difficulty.

      On social distancing, Kohler said the school counselor did a great job explaining what it meant at the beginning of the year, especially for the youngest ages.

      Report: More Orange County children facing hunger during pandemic

      Though the lives of Orange County’s children are improving in many ways, the county’s youngest residents continue to struggle with obesity, poverty, housing and getting enough to eat — issues that COVID-19 appears to be worsening — according to newly released data.

      The annual Report on the Conditions of Children, presented to the Orange County Board of Supervisors and published on the Health Care Agency’s website on Tuesday, Nov. 3, tracks 10-year trends and recent data in four areas of children’s lives: Good Health, Economic Well-Being, Educational Achievement, and Safe Homes and Communities.

      This is the 26th annual report on the lives of youngsters, who make up nearly one-quarter of the county’s 3.2 million residents.

      New Visitation Guideines Seek to Relieve Debilitating Loneliness, Safety Concerns Remain

      Some long-term care facilities are slowly reopening to allow visits from family members, recognizing that residents have been suffering both emotionally and physically after months of isolation. The facilities have been doing so according to guidelines released recently by the state, as well as by federal authorities. Still, it can be a precarious balancing act: Allowing more people in – especially when adequate testing is lacking – can mean introducing the virus.

      Children spread coronavirus to family members following exposure at child care facilities, CDC says | Fox News

      “Twelve children acquired COVID-19 in child care facilities,' the CDC report stated in its findings.

      With no good options for school in the fall, how can parents decide whether to stay home or go to class?

      I think we can agree there are no good solutions when it comes to returning American kids to school in the age of coronavirus. Reopening in places where the virus is surging is a health gamble, and counties that choose to open schools will need a dizzying array of new procedures and smaller class sizes to mitigate risk.

      Love in the time of coronavirus: Couples share how they found matches in the middle of a pandemic - CNN

      If you asked Alec Mahon one month ago whether he believed in love, he'd probably tell you he had 'given up.'

      When coronavirus first hit in March, the freelance production manager paid about $30 for a three-month premium subscription on the dating app Hinge -- and he figured he'd just keep swiping until that ended.

    13. How Strict Should Schools Be About Masks? In Orange County, The Question's Part Of The Reopening Debate: LAist

      How Strict Should Schools Be About Masks? In Orange County, The Question's Part Of The Reopening Debate: LAist

      If Orange County public schools resume in-person instruction in the fall, the county's Department of Education has advised schools to 'encourage' students to wear masks and face coverings 'to the extent feasible.'

      But several members of Orange County's elected Board of Education have voiced skepticism about the scientific consensus that masks help prevent the spread of COVID-19 — and they think the department's guidelines don't strike the appropriate balance.

      Board members are now moving to publish their own set of guidelines that — according to this document — will advise OC schools that 'requiring children to wear masks during school is not only impossible to implement but not based on science and could be potentially harmful.' Another guideline: social distancing is 'unacceptable.'

    14. Majority on O.C. School Board talk against masks, social distancing for next school year

      Majority on O.C. School Board talk against masks, social distancing for next school year
      -->

      When the Orange County Board of Education met this week to talk about how schools should reopen from the coronavirus shutdown, one of the central subjects of the debate was conspicuously missing: facemasks.

      In a spacious room with at least 40 people – in front of an online audience that over the course of the evening grew to more than 700 – only one board member, Beckie Gomez, as well as county employees and a handful of attendees, wore facial coverings.

      All the missing masks aligned with the agenda set by the board’s conservative majority at its forum Wednesday night in Costa Mesa.

      Though the Orange County Department of Education recently released its official suggestions for how school districts should re-open – emphasizing guidance from public health sources – the board’s conservative majority wanted to discuss other ideas, emphasizing less social distancing and more traditional in-class education.

      Survey Shows How Couples Cope During Lockdown

      As U.S. states issued stay-at-home orders in March and April, one of many questions was how couples would fare under lockdown together. Now a new survey offers an initial snapshot: some more arguments, regular declarations of love, and a good dose of same-old, same-old.

      The survey included close to 2,300 U.S. adults who were living with their partner when the pandemic hit -- forcing most to hunker down at home.

      Coronavirus Response: Lockdowns Necessary, but Unsustainable

      The lockdowns were necessary. They were also unsustainable. Americans, so accustomed to freedom, were bound to chafe at being told what to do. Justified fear of coronavirus devastated the food and beverage, travel, hospitality, and entertainment sectors. The economic toll could persist just for so long before it became unbearable. Nor are public health, personal freedom, and economics the only competing values in this emergency. Spiritual life has been harmed.
