Feeling sorry for the kids


Hi, I am new to scholars and I find that every day when I try to do my work I am so unproductive and I sit here and think about how the kids must be so bored. I don’t know what to do about it.

I know in a few days their virtual learning will begin and everyone will be in the house together still. I have 3 kids (12 year old twins) and a 17 year old so they are pretty self sufficient but I find myself stopping and unfocusing the minute one walks by and asks what’s for lunch. And that is still going to happen when school starts because the virtual learning is only a half day.

I just worry so much that the kids will be unhappy and lonely during this horrible time of covid and not going back school. I feel especially bad for my son who is a senior. It consumes me and then I feel depressed because at the end of the day I’m not accomplishing much and not making them happier either. Is there a model I could use that might help my situation?
