This recent Huffington Post article speaks for itself:
Our kids have had an exceptionally bad hand dealt to them the past few months. They’ve been separated from their entire social structure, their classrooms and all sense of normalcy.

HuffPo answers that question with a package of resources.

- Fluency with emotions, theirs and others
- Perspective taking
The package includes links to other relevant HuffPo articles kids’ emotional intelligence.
