Parents are more worried than ever about how their kids are coping. What kind of impact will social isolation, school closures, and lockdowns have on them? And how can we help them navigate the next new normal?


Comeback Kids: The Pocket Guide to Post-Pandemic Parenting is the action-oriented, relatable guide to get you through these tough times. Both parents, child and adolescent psychiatrist Dr. Frank DePietro and author Jacquelyn Lazo provide sound advice and realistic recommendations to help you and your kids move out of crisis mode and into post-pandemic life with ease.


By focusing on the pivotal role mental health plays in this process, this guide will teach you:

  • concrete strategies and self-help tools for how you and your child can cope better in the face of uncertainty,
  • how to interpret your kid’s concerning behavior,
  • where, when, and how to get the support you need, and
  • how to build a plan forward.

With quick checklists and mental notes throughout, this light read is perfect for busy parents who are concerned about their kids’ well-being and don’t know where or how to begin.


After reading this book, you’ll feel better prepared to parent and create a more connected family dynamic for a brighter future.
