    For my 7-year-old iPad addict, I am trying to keep him on educational apps – the school likes “Times Table Rock Stars,” and I’ve subscribed to IXL (Maths and English).

    It means I can give him the iPad while I am working at home without feeling too guilty 🙂

    (I have found him cheating by asking Siri for the spellings and sums he can’t do!)

    These posts have helped me so much tonight. I’m glad I’m not the only one struggling with exhaustion and losing my biscuits in front of the kids who are 10 and 11  (which is something I don’t usually do).

    It just feels relentless at the moment. And I am finding the conversation with friends too painful as I am the only single parent and I’ve only seen another adult twice in the last 11 weeks. I feel like Tom Hanks in Castaway!

    Stay strong everyone. We’ve got this x
