Hello parents, teachers and students!

Are you still fat and full like I am from all the Thanksgiving turkey? Boy, that was good food. Even the leftovers. And now, on to the next holiday, as we’re only 22 days away from Christmas! Can you feel it? Better get those wish lists in soon to Santa.

Today (Thursday) at 2 p.m. anchor Myra Arthur is hosting KSAT12’s first ‘Parenting in a Pandemic’ livestream, a discussion that will talk about the challenges that have been dealt to parents and guardians this year. Our panel of experts will help to figure out what to do regarding school struggles, health and safety concerns, managing their screen time or simply just coming up with things for them to do.

The livestream can be found on KSAT.com, our newsreader app or our free streaming app along with Roku and other smart TV devices and if you aren’t able to catch it, you can always watch on demand. Click below to leave a question or share something the pandemic has taught you about parenting.

And for students still seeking additional schooling help, the San Antonio Public Library continues to offer resources to help with their lessons. We also have a list of places offering free Wi-Fi for students and their families.

Stay safe and wash your hands, everybody!
