Can you relate? Welcome to the new normal!

With many schools now closed through the remainder of the school year, parents must now juggle working from home while also supervising kids full time.  

Unable to delegate schoolwork, send kids outside to play with friends, or rely on planned activities to help break up their day, parents are facing real challenges as they try to oversee their kids’ educations, juggle all the usual household responsibilities, and adjust to working from home.
