How are you getting on? That sounds tough. And the isolation makes it harder. I don’t have any support either and I was ok for the first couple of weeks but now the idea of teaching my son without a break, for half a term, in isolation, is pretty daunting. He’s 11 and not the most enthusiastic pupil. I’m trying not to dwell on it too much. Just deal with a day at a time.
Do you talk to your parents regularly? How old is your child? I’ve found that a clear routine helps a bit, so is there something you can do each day that gives you a bit of respite. A long soak in a warm bath with music, after little one is in bed?
Is there anyone you can turn to for help here, someone to do shopping or just a friendly face (from a distance). Can you join an online choir? That’s cheered me up a bit.
I completely get you, It is pretty tough, l have an 11 and a 5 year old, they get along most of the time but they do fight too and this can be exhausting, the age difference doesn’t help, but l’ve discovered that it helps a lot to have things planned out for them. The first two weeks l was keen to go through the work from the school website but that’s out the window now because my 5 year old is difficult to engage with anything from school. I follow her lead now and sometimes develop her plans further so she’s learning unaware. I will be honest l am exhausted at the end of the each day, worse now because l have no help at all with my 5 year old with a chronic illness which is difficult to manage. We visit the hospital once a week and that adds to the worry and anxiety especially now. I’m happy to be a friend to chat and look after yourself .
