Everything’s closed, including your office and children’s school. So parents and children are spending time together more than ever. And this means that parents will have to put up with all their messy lifestyles, hold Zoom conferences and meeting while your child goes wild in the background, TVs already broken, walls are changing their colors… 😳😳 A nightmare! But they need to express their energy somehow, we can’t blame them after all!
Besides, all this, it also has its pros – you get to do your work in a more creative and dynamic environment with your children around. Plus you get to spend more time together and form a stronger bond in between, which hopefully, will serve you for the better as they grow up. You create memories and also lessons together!
So scroll further to see some epic moments of children-parents in this lockdown situation, and tell us how are you handling this lockdown with your toddler, or if you don’t have any, share how are you bearing the situation overall (We need tips, we’re bored! Pls help!!!)

3# Wife And Kids Have Been Bonding Over Art During The Quarantine
Allyssa McCabe, a psychology professor at the University of Massachusetts, told The Atlantic that it’s easier to keep kids busy during the workday without supervision the older they are. But for those readers out there who have young kids, don’t panic just yet!
“For young children, independent play is tough. They really need social interaction. Parents will be tempted to hand over an iPhone or iPad or the like. This is understandable, but parents should also know that the younger the child, the worse this is for their language and cognitive development.”
