Very likely your kids will follow your lead. If you are depressed and stressed, lamenting about all the softball you are missing (Which is not really important by the way, in the large scheme of things!) then your kids will very likely be depressed and stressed also.Any chance they can be live streamed so the rest of us can get us some softball? The next health problem is going to be depression and stress due to the isolation and lack of any type of escape from the daily, bad news. Not just because of the lack of softball and other sports as an outlet, but everything is so dismal looking right now. I do however believe that, when it's over, we will all be so happy and appreciative and maybe have more gratitude going forward for what we do have. Simple things like a day at the park, being in the sunshine and just watching the kids play, will be so much more meaningful.
Well actually, I am in lockdown out here in CA. I don't have kids, just grandkids that are also at their homes. We are instructed to not venture out for anything that isn't essential so, as I do have a few Home Depot projects lined up, don't feel like risking all just to buy some drywall patch and paint. We are most likely locked down for 2 more weeks at least so, I'm sorry but, I am looking forward to a little softball. Yahtzee? Really? Neighbors? Yeah, we wave at each other from our windows. I imagine you aren't feeling the full effects of Covid in your area...yet. You're very wise by the way. Psychiatrist maybe?Very likely your kids will follow your lead. If you are depressed and stressed, lamenting about all the softball you are missing (Which is not really important by the way, in the large scheme of things!) then your kids will very likely be depressed and stressed also.
Don't you have some interests and hobbies you can pursue at home? Some home improvements you can get done? (Home Depot is open for business by me!) Get a game of Yahtzee going with your family, or a bike ride.....
Turn off the TV with the dismal news and enjoy your family, your home, your neighbors. Just an idea.
Didn't mean to imply that I was the only one. Just, the tone of your instructions to me and others, seemed a bit condescending. That's all.Wow I didnt mean to hit a nerve Jeannie. I am an ER nurse in NY so yes definitly feeling the full effects, you are not the only one!
