YOU ARE NOT ALONE.
Alright fellow parents, time to wave the white flag and leave the battlefield that is the “Mommy Wars” (or “Daddy Wars” as the case may be). Parenting during COVID is hard. Period. End of story. Throw in school starting back up in the Fall and things just got even more complicated. So… Are you a parent of school age children? Is your child attending school in person full time? If so, this is hard and you should be proud of yourself and your child! Is your child attending a mix of in person and virtual school? If so, this is hard and you should be proud of yourself and your child! Is your child attending school entirely virtually? If so, this is hard and you should be proud of yourself and your child! Is your child being homeschooled? If so, this is hard and you should be proud of yourself and your child! Are you a stay at home parent during this time or a working parent? If so, this is hard and you should be proud of yourself and your child!
Parents of school aged children are all facing unique struggles, and, despite those struggles being different, we are all united in the love of our children and our desire to help them succeed. The next few Kayt’s Kid’s Corner posts will be about the struggles many families are facing with their children back in school. The point of these posts is to let you know you are not alone and your survival during this time is to be applauded! Please read this series of posts on the struggles of parents with school age children and, as always, be compassionate to yourself and to others!
Special thanks to the wonderful parents and idea contributors of this and the next few posts regarding parenting school aged children during Covid-19, including one of our own attorneys, Scott Simonson and his wife, Shannon.
