The struggle is real for parents, there’s no doubt about that. But as they grow up and start going to school, parents finally can have the time for other things such as work. Now here’s the problem with the quarantine situation. Schools are closed and parents need to work from home. And this could only mean one thing. Working parents have to deal with their kids while finding ways to balance work and parenting. Now, that sounds like a tough challenge.

Some parents would give their kids art supplies to develop their creativity while they’re also having fun. Or you can download educational and instructional videos so they can watch and learn at the same time.
