Hilarious Impression Of Preteens At Home Wins The Internet Today
With the recent surge in COVID-19 cases, most schools have reverted back to virtual learning for the foreseeable future.
If they haven't yet, some have announced that next week will begin the all-virtual school schedule once again. As you can imagine, parents are thrilled. Sarcasm, obviously. Quite the opposite, actually. Most parents are more than unhappy with the fact that life has taken a huge step backwards as a result of the rise in positive coronavirus tests which now means that life has to once again be adjusted.
Parents are beyond tired of pivoting for COVID-19 at this point, but more so, they're not excited to be stuck in the house 24/7 without even the slightest break. I'm not a parent, so I can't even imagine the stress in the majority of households right now. It felt like life was beginning to find a new normal amid the world since for a while there it seemed like the country was managing the crisis as best it could, but now since numbers are on the rise once more, we're all about to regress in a big way.
Parents will yet again be required to work three full-time jobs. Their first is, of course, whatever their regular 9-5 is (assuming of course, they're still employed). The second is a full-time stay-at-home parent since nobody will be allowed in office buildings soon enough. The third is one that no parent signed up for and that is 'teacher'. Virtual learning has proven harder than anyone thought it would be. But, that's what you get when you rely 100% on technology, right? Things can go wrong, internet speeds can slow or completely halt schoolwork completion, and assignments may get lost in translation.
Virtual learning has resulted in parents acting as their kids' teachers as well, so to say the stress is about to pile back on is probably just pointing out the obvious at this point.
Trey Kennedy is a famous comedian who started out by posting videos to social media. A few years ago, he recorded a series of videos poking fun at preteen behavior and teenage angst that really hit the nail on the head for what parents are about to experience incessantly until it's deemed safe to get back out into the world.
It may not seen as funny by parents, but it's definitely relatable. Check it out:
