Will you be sending your child back to school next month ?
TikTok, we’re getting closer to 1 June. Some of us parents and guardians are frantically trying to cobble together uniform following relentless growth spurts, or consoling one or more of the brood because they’ve got to go back and another is still going to be what we euphemistically refer to as home schooling but in reality is…
…one or another or all of us in tears at some point…]
…because they don’t carry the one (you learned old maths mummy) or I can’t recreate a resource pack to fashion a life size suit of armour because I forgot to check what was needed before putting out the recycling. And that’s even before we contemplate juggling multiple school runs and drop offs/pick ups. We’ll end up living in the car.
But actually they don’t have to go back and we can’t be fined (at the moment) if we don’t send them back.
Personally I’m not ready to send my children back. Yes, there have been some tense moments over the past few weeks but they’ve not seen their self-isolated-since-this-started-and-not-had-contact-with-anyone grandmother and that’s the first thing we’ll do. Until then, I’m keeping them with me, at home.
How about you ?
