Quote of the Day: Covid-19 & Homeschooling.

I’d rather have him watch classic Godzilla movies and play in the yard and pretend to be a Jedi rather than figure out basic math.

A Boston, MA parent is tired of homeschooling his kindergartener.

Amid the barrage of learning apps, video meet-ups and e-mailed assignments that pass as pandemic home school, some frustrated and exhausted parents are choosing to disconnect entirely for the rest of the academic year.“Id.

Respect and admiration for teachers are growing as the pandemic-forced school closures continue.

As a parent, your job is to do what is best for your child, even during a pandemic.

Matthew Thompson is a child custody lawyer and enjoys his share of Godzilla and Jedi movies, but reminds parents that rearing your child continues to be a top priority.

Happy Area 51! An Anniversary Celebration.

We’ve heard a lot about Area 51 lately and other fictional rarities. My parents are celebrating their own, their 51st wedding anniversary!

Some years ago I was asking what the secret to their success was. Dad said the secret was mom “never forgot anything.”  Mom laughed out loud.

What I did NOT get were the clichés of never going to bed angry, that they just grew apart, or that the empty nest left them with nothing in common.  

So what did I takeaway from that?  Keep a sense of humor.  It was a big part of my life growing up. Laughing at yourself and others.

The cliché that did work and is still working, “laughter is the best medicine.”
