Trapped in their homes without well realizing the situation. Parents and grandparents trying to carry out the hard task of entertaining them as they can. Exposed to bad looks or insults everytime they leave their prisons for a breath of fresh air, from those to whom the virus seems to have given a role to finally feel gratified — that of saving the world from a window. They are the children in the time of the Coronavirus.
Clearly, every age has its own level of difficulty, both on one side and the other. Gayle Paske Klever of Iowa shared a touching photo with her grandson and husband playing Tic-Tac-Toe while separated by a glass door. “Still taking time to play with grandpa,” she wrote in the caption on Facebook.
Candice Kennedy, from the US, was only one day into her attempts at being both mum and teacher to her eight-year-old Ben when she was given a harsh dose of reality. She has been fiercely criticised by her little student through a vitriolic letter, earning the hilarity of the web.
Meanwhile, other families are spreading several ideas to help each other to cover the whole day, while some channels and sites are providing their healthy ways to keep children entertained. But, despite everything, they are just kids. And something always gets out of hand, as soon as you take your mind off them.
