Family Fun is usually what makes me look forward to weekends. Despite the restrictions on lock-down and the recent covid19 pandemic , a lot of parents are still busy and don’t have all the time for family fun activities during the week.
Schooling at home during lockdown has become part of the new normal. For some months now, most school children have been mandated by government to stay at home. This is as a result of the recent covid19 pandemic ravaging the whole world.
Most parents have found themselves in the dilemma of keeping their school children busy. This is not easy in anyway as no one planned for this. Adjusting to this new situtaion of children schooling at home is very important for both patents and their children’s wellbeing.

There were many toys on the shelf, clearly, but the boy (about five years or so) apparently wanted the one already chosen by the girl. I was going to shake my head at the hilarious childish outburst and then proceed to the counter when I got the shock of my life.
