Kids are said to be a blessing. You will know that when you get funny moments from them when you least expect it.

As Peymirat said, a lot of adjusting had to be done in families. Kids were being taught through the internet, making it necessary for parents to learn how to operate Zoom. Then there was the challenge of keeping the kids occupied the rest of the day.

If the coronavirus cases continued going up, online learning would start again. It would be more difficult this time as some parents resumed work. On the positive side, during the lockdown, parents closely interacted with their children.

The negative bit is that kids got too much screen time. Most teenagers became anxious and stayed away from their friends for fear of going out. But the younger kids were more determined, the only way with them being to explain about the pandemic and how they could protect themselves and their friends.

Peymirat’s advice to overwhelmed parents was for them to have some time out for themselves or with their partner. They could relax, recharge, and be ready to face any other challenges in 2020.
