Notice what didn’t even make it on to this list?
Schoolwork. Homework assignments. Zoom calls pretending to be classrooms.

Right. Not a priority. Not even a little.

If your kids enjoy that, then great- buy their teacher a mug, or four.

 But if it’s stressing you or your kids out?

Leave it alone. It’s just not worth it.

They will not remember more than 50% of what they learn scholastically.

They will remember family relationships, patience, emotional validation, and resilience.

Focus on what matters.
