Lives in lockdown: parents’ accounts

Coronavirus and the lockdown are affecting everyone right now. It’s really hard for families – no childcare, no school and having to work out ways to keep occupied at home together. Families are finding it difficult to cope whatever their circumstances. Even if you’re living in a nice house with a garden, trying to do work and home educate or at least keep your children occupied is hard. And if you’re living on benefits in a flat with no garden, it’s even harder.

Whatever your story, Parenting across Scotland would like to hear from you. We’re creating a record of what’s happening to families at this time and will be talking to the Scottish Government about what help families need.

If you would like to share your story, please email Alison Clancy or complete the online form here.

And a big thank you to all those parents who’ve already shared their stories with us.
