School Goes Sideways in Unfamiliar House
Family struggles to find new “learning zone”; kid demands cherries
School continues unabated, even on the road. At home, our “learning zone” is in the living room, which did not translate well here, where the living room is far more comfy. Kina hid under a blanket and refused to come out. Ultimately, we did what we imagine typical homeowners do, and put our child at the kitchen table to do her daily Zooms. Even so, we did have to break our “no snacks on the Zoom” rule and bribe her with several frozen cherries in order to get her to actually participate. Nothing is ever stable. Only snacks prevail.
