Teens in lockdown carve out new schedules. Is that a bad thing?
It may seem like some parents have lockdown life under control: maintaining schedules, keeping up with distance learning, home-cooked meals, even managing – somehow – to shower regularly.
For some of us, especially parents of teens, this may not be the case. Over the last six weeks, schedules, schoolwork, meals and even the expectation of pants (who needs ‘em?) have gone to the wayside as teens Facetime at all hours and sleep in late.
But take heart, pandemic parents. According to a recent article in the Boston Globe, this new, no-pressure normal may be exactly what some teens need.
