“Expect the unexpected” seems the be the name of the game these days. As summer wraps up, schools around the country are scrambling. Each city and district is trying to do what’s best for students, teachers, and families. It all looks different as the pandemic continues to have far-reaching consequences. Every parent you talk to seems to give you a different school scenario ranging from virtual to hybrid, part-time to private tutors, homeschooling to family “pods”. Everyone is looking for ways to create normalcy out of the abnormal.
Many families are not only concerned with their children’s schooling choices, but they are also concerned about providing safe and adequate care for their senior loved ones. Families who care for elderly loved ones are forced to make difficult decisions about senior care and child care. Some families choose to keep children home from school in order to reduce exposure for their at-risk family members. Many are tired, overwhelmed, and anxious.
It’s Time to Ask for Help
Asking for help is not easy. In the middle of a global pandemic asking for help may not seem like an option. Yet, continuing to provide senior care for the aging, while working (in many cases remotely) and also caring for children and their education, it all is simply too much. It’s time to ask for help.
