Watch more with these video collections:

Every ten-year-old kid goes through big changes, all while simultaneously learning to navigate and understand the wider world. By nature, this makes them incredibly resilient and adaptable. Their resilience might give them an edge when it comes to taking on the huge shifts happening in 2020, from COVID-19 to nationwide protests to a polarizing election.

This is Being 10 in 2020. Join Danielle Bainbridge, Ph.D., and Dr. Ali Mattu as they listen to kids from communities all over the United States about “staying strong, safe, and sane in 2020.” Their advice: Go with the flow, stay connected, stay active, learn a new skill, and find ways to cope.

Bainbridge is a historian and the writer/creator of PBS’s The Origin of Everything. Mattu is a licensed therapist and clinical psychologist, and host of The Psych Show.
