To state the obvious (but hey, you gotta start the post somehow), the pandemic upended the lives of a lot of people. As a dad with kids I feel (and I might be wrong) that families with kids were hit worse than average: not only were we locked in, our kids were locked in too.
We’ve been experimenting for a while with various family organisation aids to smoothen our family dynamic but with this latest blow we absolutely needed to clarify how we can operate together as a family.
The parenting context
We are all getting used to our new life under COVID-19 lockdown, where the end of our explorable world is the end of our property, and after that the computer suddenly turns us back and walks us back to our house. My work day can now officially start at 8:30 because hey, it’s not like I’m stuck in traffic. I’m also saving some € on fuel, and by the way on food as well, it seems so far. How’s your lockdown going so far?
