“Home has so many distractions. And most of us are not teachers.. And if your kids are like mine, you have to sit next to them all day helping and encouraging… leaving very little time for real work, housework or other children’.

She went on to share an inspiring quote sent to her by a friend.

“What if it’s these kids, this generation that have more compassion, more understanding, more abilities to do practical things around the house, more able to calm themselves in times of worry?” pondered the quote.

“What if they spend all that time at home making sure they appreciate the finer things in life… like socializing, making friends, and going outside to exercise? All things they are not allowed to do at the moment.’

Chezzi’s quote then expressed his fear of being a “terrible mother” because of “asking them to focus, telling them to do their job…and sometimes raise my voice in frustration.”

Then he asked, ‘Why are we so hard on ourselves? What kind of things are you doing with your kids to survive the lockdown and home schooling?
