I thank my lucky stars my three children are grown and out of the house. If I were trying to take care of them at home while working remotely during a pandemic, I would have had an ulcer by now. And I would have likely lost my temper multiple times and would be viewing myself as a bad mom, if not a terrible one. I don’t know how people with children, especially young children do it. It is a mammoth job. But they’re doing it, and doing it while under a huge amount of COVID-19-caused stress, not the least of which is financial.
