Amidst home schooling, clinical work & household chores, here I am trying to keep my sanity the best way I know how -- masking! LOL!

If there is one word that can sum up this week, it’s HOME SCHOOL!

I am a quiet and private person. Not many people outside of my family know that I am a recently separated solo parent of two young children. The enhanced community quarantine had me close my private and hospital clinics. Although it has given me this much-needed time to be with my children, it has also impacted my financial capacity considerably. I alone support my small family plus our staff. As I continue to do my clinical work behind the scenes, I have also started to feel the strain of home schooling.

Initially, we started with just morning sit-down sessions and afternoon physical or creative activity sessions. However, the homework load has increased this week. I have my elder child work on his assignments almost the whole day everyday… And it’s not just him working on it. I have to read, understand and teach the lessons. Don’t get me wrong. I love my children, and there’s nothing I wouldn’t do for them… But I miss regular school!

Tutoring + working + household chores = one exhausted stay-at-home dermatologist!
