In a report by CNN many parents are making the decisions to include their children’s boyfriends or girlfriends to their pandemic bubbles. In the report Dr. Mahtab Jafari encourages that if families decided to include their children’s significant others to their pandemic pods, it is important to have open communication and to set realistic boundaries within the household.
These boundaries would include things like not socializing with other families during the pandemic as well as conversations about privacy within their pandemic pod.
Mahtab Jafari is a Professor within the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences at the UCI School of Pharmacy & Pharmaceutical Sciences. She developed and teaches a Life 101 course that is now taught across all 10 campuses in the University of California system.
