@sueinmn. This is indeed a tough situation. Young children do not understand the severity of covid. It's hard enough for them to wash their hands, let alone wear masks when they were never required to do so in their lifetime. Older children often push the boundaries to assert their independence. I read that in Alabama, college kids are having covid party, those who are infected go to parties on purpose and see who get infected next. Such mentality is scary. It's not easy for parents who are now working at home to take care of young children at the same time. In Japan, the found that child abuse cases had gone up since the pandamic.
I'm grateful my grandchild is only 2, and he doesn't really understand the situation yet. He wore a mask the whole time when I went to see him for a brief moment. My son, daughter in law and myself all wore masks and sat outside in a safe distance. The sad part is I don't get to hug him. He should be running around in the park, on a jungle gym and learn to swim, but all that are on hold.
He's missing alot too.
Education is so very important, my friend's granddaughter is due to report to college, and although they set a date in September to start school, it is still subject to change.

@mayofeb2020 Yes these are scary times. My son works at Cal State here in L.B.and said the college will be closed to students this fall so learning will be done from home .
