They’re probably talking about how they want crackers too right? And snacks. And how they want the iPad for ‘just ten extra minutes.’ There is nothing like the energy of a child who has mastered narrating events as they happen, telling you the names of nearby objects, and utilising the word ‘why’ about everything, including facts they know – like what bedtime is.

As a parent, you always know the best way to answer the hard questions. The perfect example of A+ parenting is Sarah J White @DrSarahWhite on Twitter. The corona pirates are out there and so, for now, everyone is staying in.

Hey, Abby Heugel @AbbyHaslssues on Twitter, agreed. You are the queen of this crisis. Yes! Why do we all have these bags full of plastic bags? Make sure they’re all disinfected, tuck them away, or recycle them once it’s safe to go out and about again.

Why won’t parents listen? Thank you, Brigid Delaney @BrigidWD on Twitter for perfectly articulating the great irony that is being an adult with parents, who need to parent their parents. Adulting, indeed!

Challenge not accepted! You might end up with a mullet or a shag. It’ll be OK. These hairdos will be coming back in style soon. Also, it’s perfectly acceptable to wear a hat during your video conference call. You won’t be the only one.

Anyone who was sent to their room on the regular knows how to get through quarantine. Lie on the bed, stare at the ceiling, blast the music (earphones optional), and brood. You’ve got this. Introverts are also in their element right about now. Alone time. It’s a way of life.
