Parenting In Quarantine: A new normal

https://www.nytimes.com/2020/05/13/opinion/parenting-coronavirus-burnout.html

Quote:
What does parenting burnout look like during a pandemic? After a column by Farhad Manjoo on the subject, thousands of readers told us about their “new normal.” For many, excessive screen time was the least of their worries.

“Our goal is to survive: no divorce, no getting fired and no children running away from home. If we can do that, I’ll consider us a success story,” wrote Marie LaRiviere, a reader in Fremont, Calif. “We have lowered our expectations in every way possible.”
Fortunately, we are empty nesters. I could not imagine having to do this.

Not my problem. If you can’t handle being a parent 24/7 then don’t have any kids.

Everyone thinks they can until they can't.
