CLEVELAND — As part of News 5’s initiative to get your kids Safely Back to School, we hosted a Facebook Live chat Thursday morning with a local psychologist about how to prepare your kids for the stress that will no doubt come from returning to school in the fall.

Watch a replay of the Q&A below:

Dr. Tyffani Monford Dent is a psychologist in the Ohio Child Welfare and court system, a motivational speaker and the author of three books: "Girls Got Issues: A Woman’s Guide to Self-discovery & Healing," "Black Girl: Unapologetically," and "You Got This! A Girl’s Guide to Growing Up."

Dent has previously spoke with News 5 Investigator Sarah Buduson on Facebook Live and answered your questions and concerns about mental health, stress, and dealing with the coronavirus pandemic and its impact on all our lives.
