Families share 4 lessons learned from pandemic parenting
As life starts returning to normal, parents reflect on the old routines and priorities they’re reconsidering.
Mia Wenjen of Newton, Mass., a parent of three children, ages 16, 19, 21, worried especially about how remote learning would affect her son, a sophomore in high school. But it went far better than she expected. He socialized and played games with friends on Zoom, and as a night owl, he liked the hours he could keep as a remote learner.
“I’m not sure if he is learning as much as his older sisters did when they were in 10th grade, but I don’t think that matters,” says Wenjen, who writes about education and children’s literature in the Pragmatic Mom Blog. “I feel like he learned other things, such as cooking and art. I think having extra time allowed him to pursue independent projects.”
