Parenting Lockdown27 July 2020
We found ourselves forced into lockdown back in March and as a result, our lives as we knew it were turned upside down.
For parents, its meant that they have had to juggle family life, home schooling and for some, even working from home – all at the same time.
For some, that might sound easy, but for parents we know that it’s not.
Two parents who have openly discussed the challenging situation are Rob Beckett and Josh Widdicombe and they have launched a podcast: “Lockdown Parenting Hell” to share their experiences.
While they compare notes and seek comfort for their daily struggles, they also invite a celebrity guest to join in, as well as invite other parents to share their woes by writing in to them.
As avid listeners, we couldn’t help but laugh when we heard how some parents were resorting to ‘playtime’ in their parked car – allowing their children to roam free all over the car – simply to distract the little cherubs for an hour.
We also love the idea that parents are using their car as their safe space. They take themselves out and sit in the blissful silence of their car – locking all the doors so that they can have an hour of uninterrupted peace and quiet.
