We have five children whose ages range from 25 down to 11 years old. Normally, in any one day we’re building dens, steering through the teenage conundrums, catching up with our Uni-students and encouraging their various ventures and adventures.
However, it's lockdown, so something has happened that we could never have envisigaed - we're full nesters again, and loving it.
Our eldest (a Spanish teacher) is Zooming lessons from the lounge and selling his enormous range of vintage football tops which have overtaken parts of the landing. Our next is at dance school and she Zooms her tap, ballet, singing et al at the church hall. Mr. Lower 6th is managing his school career through headphones, the film maker is in the middle of an animation and our schoolie is doing his home-ed. And there is a competitive game of four square that takes up all the margins.
As a parenting consultant (encourager), I'm constantly impressed by parents who want to learn, grow and be the best they can be, even when the days are tough. I hope my blogs encourage you too. And do pop across to my podcast for encouragement and inspiration. See you there!
