Many of us are having to take on multiple roles playing parent, employee, and teacher for children in our care. We are not meant to play all these roles at once even when things are “normal.”
It is especially difficult to parent 24/7 with no support system. We are unable to reach for family, friends, and childcare that sustained us prior to the pandemic. We are having to come to terms with being unable to ‘do it all’—it is physically impossible to be the best parent and best employee and all this while managing intense emotion from you and your child around a global pandemic.
