Parents Are Sharing Hilarious Photos Of The Chaos That Comes With Kids And Quarantine

by Elana

There's two reasons you want to see these photos, either you have kids and you need to know you're not the only one suffering right now, or you need a reminder to keep it wrapped while you're on quarantine or practising extreme social distancing. Being home for work or laid off of work becomes a double whammy when your kids are also home from school.

Kids need a lot of stimulation to stay out of trouble, and most parents aren't equipped to take on the role of a qualified educator. It's hard! Why, even traditional homeschooling includes lots of "field trips," to museums, parks, and social gatherings. We are confined to our families and everyone is losing it.

May as well laugh about it...

1. "Came Across This On My Morning Walk"

Also relatable.


2. "Schools And Sports Are Cancelled. Social Distancing. I Have Three Kids. Our Cozy Fort"

DO try this at home.


3. "Daaaad, We're Bored!" (Day 1 Of Lockdown) "Ummm Ok, Strip This Laptop Down, And This Desktop, And Then Rebuild Them"

This is actually great, a good life skill.


4. "Break Time. Homeschooling"

You gotta do what you gotta do.


5. "Day 2 Of 6 Week Break And My Kid Already Broke Our TV"

They're definitely going to regret that.

Get creative, because you have to.

Oh... oh no.

That went well.
