The lockdowns have been brutal. Children lost their connections with friends and parents and have battled their own frustrations topped off by home schooling. And now we are heading into school holidays!
Our children have begun to feel this year some of the normality that school routine can give them, but further lockdowns, particularly in Victoria, and a constant sense of unease and anger felt by parents about border closures, cancelled celebrations and holiday plans continue to hurt them.
Many parents see these school holidays malignly as another interruption. But let’s turn them into a blessing!
