It is currently the beginning of May, and that means right now is the time to celebrate our mothers. While previous stay-at-home orders and current plans to slowly re-open select states across the US have made it a bit difficult to celebrate this year, there are still plenty of ways you can show your mom that you care about her.
Instead of a card, a necklace, or even a nice bouquet, try giving your mother quality time. Quality time together is one of the most rewarding things you could give to your anyone. And, considering the current reality, one of the safest and most convenient ways to be together is through digital communication.
While you may not be able to do something together face-to-face, Continuing Education and Workforce Training’s upcoming online courses are one way you and your mom can do something fun together!
Here are some upcoming CEWT online classes that you and you mom you could take together in the comfort of your own homes:
