Being home with your kids in a pandemic is a LOT to handle. It feels impossible to keep on top of online schoolwork, get meals ready, and get your own work done. You're exhausted. And that means more fights with your partner, too. You just need a moment to yourself. To relax and regroup. You're so ready for the kids to go back to school. But you're dreading that moment too. You remember the phone calls about classroom behavior and unfinished assignments. And the meltdowns over drama with friends. You're not sure you're ready to handle all that again. But it CAN get better. Now, and in the future.
