Sisters & Friends
Growing up with siblings, is a challenge itself, being stuck with siblings during lock down, well could someone point me in the direction of a nuclear bunker. I have to say, it has been a testament to our parenting, as they’ve not yet killed each other and I suppose we have the experience of living with our own siblings, to understand as parents, the needs of our children. Not only does being in a confined situation effects us as parents, it also effects our children as well and so their well being needs must always be met, even during this testing time for all.
The impact of being away from friends is hard for anyone, especially if you have a close group of them. As adults we become complacent with our friends and over time, some of those friendships fizzle out. But as children, we hold onto our close friendships and so we have to be aware, the effects of not seeing anyone other than your family for 7 weeks on a child’s mind.
