For all of you who feel like you haven't done the best of jobs during lockdown, I encourage you to focus on what you are proud of, rather than worry about what you have not achieved.
Just to provide some perspective during the two weeks of 2021 level 4 lockdown my year 12 teen:
Painted a picture = 2 days
Sorted out her cupboards = 1 day
Tried out the treadmill = 30 min
Went for a bike ride = 1 1/2 hours
Started to make a model = half a day
Made some cookies = 2 hours
Watched some films = at least six that I am aware of, and probably more that I am not
Slept = 13 nights, and 13 mornings
Ate with the family = 11 times
Played games with the oldies = 3 times
Helped cook dinner = Twice
Did some school work = Hopefully!
Helped walk the dogs = Twice
Coped with me or her father checking in on her = At least five times a day
Stayed in her room on her phone, talking to friends, listening to music, playing games and watching who knows what = The rest of the time
The thing is I don't really know what she got up to 24/7, I was trying to do me while she was being her, but looking back to when I was a teen I doubt my parents would have been able to tell you what I was up to either.
All I know is that I am proud that:
She showed me that she can focus on things that she enjoys
She managed to motivate herself to do some exercise
She had time to rest and recuperate during this strange time
She did not complain as often as she could have done
We retained our connection
Focus on your proud parent moments from this lockdown, while remembering that this is but a small part of the whole picture!
