Boys and Girls Club of Greater Cincinnati steps in to help families juggling work, online learning

CINCINNATI — Many working parents are faced with a seemingly impossible challenge during the COVID-19 pandemic: Working while teaching their children, who are learning online, at the same time. Although parents know how to cope and multitask, it’s just not possible to be in two places at once.

That’s where the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Cincinnati comes in. The organization has expanded its traditional after-school services to welcome students during the day, too. At the Boys and Girls Club, children have a quiet, safe place to focus on their virtual classes and get help from trained staff members.

“And the reason we’re doing that is to meet the needs of our families,” said Boys and Girls Club of Greater Cincinnati CEO Bill Bresser. “This is the most challenging school year that they’ve probably ever faced.”

Bresser said the organization didn’t plan on the sudden shift but began its

That matters and schools must be prepared for the support of children suffering from a loss, with counseling and other trauma-related interventions.

2. Give a lot of small, incremental assessments: This may sound counter to the first icebreaker/relationship building step, as you may be worried kids will react with, “Oh no, back at school and

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson has spent the offseason doing more than just preparing for the season ahead.

Jackson spoke to reporters Wednesday for the first time since he made offensive comments in early July regarding anti-Semitism, which included promoting quotes attributed to Adolf Hitler and praising noted anti-Semitic preacher Louis Farrakhan.

“The aftermath of everything has been a long process,” he said. “I’ve been just using the time to educate myself and really just man up to the actions I took and just educate and learn from it.”

Jackson apologized after facing a backlash earlier in the summer, even accepting an offer from New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman to go on a trip to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C.

“People make mistakes in life, and
