One of my daughters can’t bear to put her book down. The other only wants to play dress-up.
I’ve told her that Ms. G is struggling with her own issues in the pandemic. But getting her out the door is still a nightmare.
She says she’s “done” when she’s not. And when I try to intervene, it ends in tears.
We don’t want our children spending all day on devices—but we don’t want to deprive them of social outlets in the pandemic, either.
Our son needs structure, but he also needs to unwind. What should we prioritize?
