One minute we as a family are running non stop, to a full stop in just a week. Covid 19 has created mass panic, media totaling the numbers infected, number of those who have died, and the worst part is the unknown.
My husband keeps asking me but don't you remember the previous illness that hit the media. I honestly don't.
I know social media is to blame and yet I love having the up to date information at my finger tips. What I don't like is explaining to my children the media has created a sense of panic in many.
I can explain to my children the need for washing your hands. They understand germs, they understand not spreading germs. What they dont understand is why people are panicking. They don't understand why now one parent is at home working from home while the other parent is still going to work. They dont understand why kids at school are upset and scared.
They do know we will get through this, and in the end it might be just what we needed as a family.
