Notice what didn’t even make it on to this list? Schoolwork. Homework assignments. Zoom calls pretending to be classrooms.
Right. Not a priority. Not even a little.
If your kids enjoy that, then great- buy their teacher a mug, or four.
But if it’s stressing you or your kids out?
Leave it alone. It’s just not worth it.
They will not remember more than 50% of what they learn scholastically.
They will remember family relationships, patience, emotional validation, and resilience.
Focus on what matters.
