Parenting Truths in the Age of Coronavirus

Parenting is hard in and of itself.  Just being a parent is hard.  Parenting with Coronavirus is even harder.  Now I can’t even turn to the other moms at Starbucks.  I can’t even leave the house. If I try to Facetime with another Mom my three year old runs into the bathroom. Who can I turn to for parenting advice?  Fortunately there’s the collective wisdom of Twitter.  Twitter never fails me. It’s like a parenting guru there to guide me through the rough times.
