With many areas having a stay at home order in place, families across the globe are being forced to spend more time together. And though the circumstances for the family togetherness is terrible, and something we had hoped never to face, the reality of it is that many families have grown closer. If we can take anything good out of this pandemic, it will be the memories of things that we did together as families.
Families are playing together, cooking together, and watching movies together. Families that used to eat dinner on the go in between their numerous extracurricular activities, are now sitting down at the kitchen or dining room table and eating together. Parents are teaching their kids how to cook. In some families, the grown ups and kids are learning to cook together. Parents are playing an active role in their child’s education, like we have never seen before!
I get that many of us are literally starting to lose our minds from boredom, fear, and what have you; but we need to remain strong. We can and will get through this. I truly do believe it.
In the meantime, play all the games, watch all the movies, and have some fun with your kids. We all need to distraction right now.
