As we have moved toward home-based learning and work-from-home arrangements due to COVID-19, the Families for Life (FFL) Council has launched the #FFLShareTheCare Series to help parents and children to be meaningfully engaged while you stay safe at home.

Both parts of the series--#ASKFFL, where parents can pose questions on a wide range of topics to doctors and experts, and #FriendsofFFLShare, which will feature FFL volunteers in light-hearted and engaging content, from interactive storytelling to art-jamming—can be streamed from their Facebook page.
