As if raising children wasn’t hard already, coronavirus has taken this goddamn mission to a whole new level. In fact, moms and dads have had to go headlong into the call of triple duty—parenting, homeschooling, and coming up with some free-time activities.

While chaos is setting in inside their households, parents are sharing the most hilarious moments of their duty on Twitter. The result is Bored Panda’s compilation of the best March tweets delivered right here below. You may find it soothing during these trying times because kids are unpolished gold in the (tragi)comedy department.

And scroll down for our interview with Martin Whitehead, the director of communications at Homeschool Association of California, about how the coronavirus is changing the ways people run their households. Psst! An extra batch with 30 of the best parenting tweets of February is right here.

That is actually quite sad, and yet so many people still don’t think the US has a gun problem.

We aren't the only country. I think that every single fucing thing has both PROS and CONS. So back off of our country having issues. We aren't the only ones, and nothing is perfect.

To not "actually" be shot/incident at school or have a perception of being shot at. Big difference. There's a lot of emotion but very little logic in this blog train.

Let's break it down this way: Do you blame a car when someone dies and say there is a car problem? No. Do you blame a knife and say there is a knife problem when someone is stabbed? No. Do you blame rope for people having been hung or hanging themselves? No. See where this is going? At some point, being irrational is quite obvious. Guns aren't the problem anymore than knives, rope, cars, or any other thing used to kill are. The problem is societal and cultural, not material. People kill more in the US because we are a shitty corporate driven slave society where most people work themselves to death for next to nothing. We don't get months off for vacation, many are underpaid and overworked. And you think the problem has anything to do with guns...stupid.

10 ain't that young. When kids are having active shooter drills and seeing news reports of their fellows being murdered, they're going to notice the threat. Hell, kids feel terror at imaginary monsters under the bed, why the fuck would they not be scared of real ones?

According to Education Week, at least 104,000 public and private schools in America are closed now. With at least 47.9 million school students staying at home, parents find themselves struggling to cope with 24/7 on-duty challenges.

Experts suggest defining routines and schedules that work for the whole family. This research claims that children benefit greatly from consistent routines that give a sense of security and stability.

I object. If you make them not be afraid, that is sufficient. Children are resilient, yet the smaller ones do not comprehend the reasoning. Doing as good as possible, however, should be enough to assure yourself after a long day that it was _fine_.

After the California Governor ordered nearly 40 million residents to stay at home today, a challenging period has started for many families. “Many are working from home, those in critical functions who still commute to work will practice social distancing measures at their work, and sadly, many have lost jobs,” said Whitehead in an interview with Bored Panda.

Whitehead believes that it’s quite a change for many to spend so much additional time in close quarters with their children and significant other(s). “One approach is to meet our loved ones where they are, in terms of supporting their needs for alone time, group games and activities, and digital and on-line play, for example.” But the director of Homeschool Association assured us that “there is no one-size-fits-all solution.”

It’s important to understand that there’s no one right way for a family to homeschool. Whitehead suggests “checking in with themselves and their families to informally or formally find out what everyone needs and wants and then crawl, walk, run, fly to approaches that work for the entire family.” But if something doesn’t work, try the next big thing.

Most importantly, remember that we are not alone. “We all belong to larger networks of families working through the same problems and challenges.” Whitehead explains: “Our biggest resource is each other, and we can reach out to our neighbors, friends, clubs, churches, synagogues, mosques, elected officials and other resources on-line and by phone.”

When my cousin was around 3-4 my mother tried to sing along to the Elmo song she was singing. Sadie fell to the ground and dramatically wailed, "Asson (she couldn't say Alison), when you sing, you make me so, SO sad!". It is still often quoted in our house even 7 years later.

Is there any difference to adults? On Twitter you will read stuff like it came from secret US laboratories, the chinese released it to make Western companies go bankrupt, the Russians released it to destabilize Europe etc. etc.
