parenting note #711

Millions of parents have turned into teachers thanks to the pandemic.

It hasn’t been a smooth or fun transition for most moms and dads.

A few have taken quickly to the role.

Others are drowning.

The formerly Permanent Roommate has taken on a bulk of the homeschooling responsibility while still working a full-time job from her home office.

If you’re a parent who’s teaching multiple kids while working a full-time job at home, this message is for you.
