    I remember a special place that burned off a great deal of my built-up energy as a child. It was a very nice place called "OUTDOORS". Just saying..... ๐Ÿ™‚
    It's amazing when you compare your childhood to that of kids today, I'm not talking about kids in lockdown just in general. I used to practically live outside then you would hear your name being shouted to go in and eat and then head back out again if it was still clear. I see it with my nephews, all but one of them would rather stay inside and look at a screen than go out, it's really sad.

    I spent half my childhood up a tree.

    Na, it's good to learn to share.
    Any anyway where would that leave us!?
    we'd have double everything, there'd be no room for running around ๐Ÿ˜€
    Teach them to take turns, use a kitchen timer if necessary to establish a framework.

    Thats the nice thing about parents with unruly kids. They have nobody to blame but themselves. lol .. love it. The lockdown in a God-send for teachers and the general public that had to face the results of your failure as a parent. Now you are stuck all alone with them. Deal with it. I hope also you learn something.
    Parents do not raise children. It is the parents who grow up by this process. Their kids grow up later.

    It goes without saying that learning and growing up is a lifelong process, for some.

    Surely its not easy to work from home, especially when you have children to deal with. I have been working from home for about three months and with my two kids "One eight year old boy and other 5 year old girl", I am having real issues doing my work with full attention. Not only with my work I was having issues playing my games as well because my kids don't go to bed unless I go to bed as well because they don't have to go to schools in the morning so they can afford to go to bed even after midnight. I am currently playing cyberpunk 2077 and there are many issues with the game but thanks to websites like psychosquad.com I got solutions for most of the problems but I didn't find any solution on any website on how to handle my kids while playing the game or doing my work ๐Ÿ™‚

    I think parents are developing a new found depth of respect for teachers.

    Children do not need school holidays. It's the teachers who need them. To recover.
