Elmo’s Dad has a Message for Quarantined Parents
Being a parent wasn't easy before the Coronavirus pandemic. Now, on top of the regular mommy and daddy duties - we're teachers, guidance counselors, video game buddies, school nurse, and more. I'm not complaining, as I deem each one of the new tasks to 100% part of my regular parenting responsibilities - I'm just saying I don't think any of us were quite prepared for the scope or duration of this lock-down.
That's why I thought the message from Sesame Street's Louie (Elmo's dad) was so awesome. There has been a lot of focus on keeping the kids safe, happy, and entertained - but maybe we should shift some of it to the people providing all of that. I'm talking about you!
