As parents grappling with life in the era of coronavirus ourselves, we know how hard it feels to get through these days—let alone what the next weeks and months will bring. Every day, we’ll share a few great things that are helping us cope with kids at home, work to do, and plenty to worry about. We hope they help you, too.
Savor the mini wins. Parenthood is the most exhausting job on the planet—and all the more so right now, when your kids are stuck at home, there are no playdates, and everyone is on top of each other.
