According to Peymirat from ‘Calmer Parenting,’ the coronavirus has changed family life in a lot of ways. At the start of the pandemic, there were a lot of kids learning via the internet and this caused a lot of new issues for parents, from learning how the heck Zoom works to figuring out how to keep their kids entertained all day at home.

As coronavirus cases continue to rise, we might see a greater return to distance learning in some areas, and parents will have to juggle having their children at home all the time again. Some schools are already having classes online again, but not all parents are working from home again, so it’s a real pickle of a situation.

Peymirat explained that there are both positives and negatives that came with the pandemic. On the plus side, the pandemic led to more interactions between parents and their kids, especially when everyone was under lockdown.

Ouch. Particularly since you know that children will tell the truth.

On the flip side, the lockdowns had also increased the amount of time that kids spend in front of screens. That’s not all, however.

“Some parents reported anxiety in teens who did not want to go out and see friends, not so from younger children who are often quite resilient,” the parent coach revealed. She said that the best way to calm down a child is to be factual about the Covid-19 pandemic and to give them advice about protecting themselves and others.

Peymirat also advised parents who are feeling overwhelmed with everything to take any opportunity that they can to have some alone time with just themselves or with their partner. This way, parents can recharge, relax, and be ready to overcome anything else that 2020 throws at them.

So many reasons to be mad at somebody in the morning, though 😃

And it's strange how no one here seems to think of finding out the reason and doing something about it.

My daughter just wants to be alone in the morning, so I just stay in bed until she leaves for school. Otherwise, I would be too loud, in the way, talking too much, ... Apparently her morning mood has improved a lot (according to my other daughter who at some days has to get out the house at the same time thus has to be in the vicinity of the other). Good for me, an extra hour of semi-sleep (listening to the noises).

Has to be the breathing, very annoying in general.

honestly, it's probably because you did something that offended her but you either never apologized or she never forgave you, and she's still upset. I suggest talking to her instead of brushing it off as just 'the dreaded teen years' and posting something on twitter. It's truly not hard.

But sometimes the offense can be as simple as saying your room needs to be cleaned.

And that's why I find important to remember how I felt in different periods of life. To be able to understand people of that age or in that situation. Also, if you don't speak with your children, you may find one day you don't understand each other - which is something that is quite bad right now for me in my relations with my mother... I am not sure how about mocking, maybe it will push them more to find friends outside, but I have rather unpleasant memories to this... And I at least hope they should be able to explain what's wrong - indeed, they have to learn that first, I agree (the question is how).
