To live in lockdown is one thing, but to live in lockdown as a parent is a different story altogether. Parents have their deadlines to meet, errands to run, and children to take care of. With schools closed down, parents have to become teachers and friends to their children, while chasing their own professional responsibilities. All of this can be challenging and overwhelming because of the lockdown that came without a warning. As the situation intensified, it became clear that good old parenting skills would not work in this new normal, and parents would need to come up with new and creative means to balance their personal and professional lives.
The thing about parenting is it runs on the unending fuel of love, care, and an unwavering sense of responsibility. Parents can adapt to any situation, climb any barrier for the sake of their children. And that’s what so many parents have done to keep their children stress-free and happy. This Parents’ Day, Soulveda talks about the challenges parents have faced and how they rose to the occasion to keep their children safe and families together.
