We discussed in our last blog how our mental health during lockdown has taken a hit. We’re all facing feelings of loneliness and isolation more intense than we may have ever experienced before. Fortunately, there are some ways to combat these. One big one is reminding your kids that there’s a global community out there, all of us experiencing the same thing. That’s right – we’re pushing for a return to good ol’ fashioned international pen pals. If your child has never had a pen pal, this can be especially good fun.
While pen pals have moved online these days, there are still options for plain handwriting. This can make the experience more life-like, and bring them a more intimate relationship with the global community. Additionally, this is a fantastic way to help them keep up their French. Around this time the goals we made at the end of 2020 are starting to seem distant. Revitalise your resolutions with international pen pals.
