Hi Goldilocks, that sounds horribly familiar. I’m locked down with my 11yo son. I love him to bits but he’s either arguing against doing school work or on his pc.

I persuade him to do 4 pieces of school work a day and a walk or a bike ride for maybe another hour, but outside that, he doesn’t speak and is absorbed in MineCraft.

I cook, wash, clean, garden and it’s getting to me too.  I haven’t had an adult face to face conversation in 7 weeks. It’s miserable. You aren’t alone ☹️. Hopefully not long now….
