Schools are temporarily closed. So are theme parks and attractions. The stage lights at the theaters are off. Grocery store shelves are picked bare within hours of being re-stocked (don’t worry–as far as we know, there will be no major interruption in the food supply chain.) Want toilet paper, hand sanitizer, or Clorox wipes? Forget it.
Most of us can expect to be hunkered down at home as we attempt to stunt the growth of COVID-19 cases. It’s not just for our health and the health of our children, it’s for the good of society as a whole.
So, let’s embrace it. Let’s also not get to judgey with screen time. In fact, let’s embrace screen time because there are some fantastic online learning tools your kids can take advantage of now…including you! Why shouldn’t you boost your brain power or learn a new skill?
