Re: With 3 small kids, I am freaking out right now!
When my kids were small I loved having them home...

I loved school breaks and holidays with them.

Enjoy your kids. They grow up so fast! Then you'll miss them like crazy.

Leave now. Go to the hills, near water. Plant potatoes, fish... Survive.
And when it and if it blows over then come back.

Don't want to scare you but watch this then act accordingly. Good luck buddy

Re: With 3 small kids, I am freaking out right now!
My anxiety is sky high. I have 2 younger teenagers and a 10 year old. My husbands job puts us at high risk for getting it.

I’m a mom who does not get flu shots for the kids, I truly believe kids need to get sick for their immune system, but this is a different animal in my mind because of the unknown. I’m not saying I get my kids sick, I’m saying if they don’t get it while they are young, what happens when they are elderly?


This is anxiety I don’t know what to do with, so I’m dealing the best I can. Husband thinks I’m overreacting, anyone with anxiety issues knows it’s neither over or under reacting. It’s reacting that is beyond my control and I’m doing my best to deal/alleviate it.


I kind of just want my husband to bring the shit home before hospitals are overwhelmed, because unless the heat kills it, he’s going to bring it home.

Re: With 3 small kids, I am freaking out right now!
My daughter is a nurse in the ER department at one of our local hospitals. She has my only 3 grandbabies ( along with her husband of course) I;m worried about all of them.
So far so good. Kids are doing lessons online in the morning..then in the afternoon, daughter and son in law are doing "life" lessons. About medicine, first aid, gardening, even building things with leggos..learning architecture.

My husband is #2 on transplant list for a new liver. He had non alcoholic based Hepatitis C ( which has since been cured withe the drug Harvoni) We are waiting on a call from Birmingham Alabama and have to be ready at a moments notice when we receive the call to go. (About 4 hours away from my area in NW Fla) I worry about transporting him and how his immune system will be so damaged after the surgery.

I know its hard to try to keep it together mentally...just be strong and trust everything will work out ok. Worrying constantly doesn't help anything but damage your health. Hug those babies and enjoy every minute you have with them.

Re: With 3 small kids, I am freaking out right now!
I have done a bit of prepping, but i am still freaking out! Its all because of these kids!!! I could handle this if it were just me and the wife. I think any parent has to be feeling the same things i am!
 Quoting: Oxi moran


Yes. I can manage myself but the fear for my children is off the charts. It's even worse because I am co-parenting with a nothingburger so they aren't ready for rationing, distancing or natural remedies to boost the immune system.

I can't tell you it will all be okay, but I can assure you that you are NOT alone.

Don't panic.


The good news is this is not affecting many children gravely.


And the death rate so far in our country is much lower than the international average.



We are also close perhaps to coming up with some successful treatments.



You have to keep hope.


For your children and yourself and your spouse.



Not a bad idea to pray, too, imo.

Couple points here. It blew up while we were there, we didnt just say...hey covid is here, lets go to disney.I mean I knew about it, but I wasnt worried. It was planned way ahead of time. Second, children are kicking the shit out of this thing, its the older people that are in danger.

Do you vitamin C and D3 you can give your kids, chewable or gummier? Keep everyone's immune system up as best you can.

The crazy thing is young kids (most) do not have a grasp about what this all means (big picture).
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 47501301


They don't.

Source: Parent of 6.

And kids are doing great with this virus, statistically speaking.

If your greatest worry is food supply, there is still food in even the most rampaged stores.

You just have to teach them food flexibility. You can do this by making the new foods look really fun, and by your own enthusiasm. Tell them every dish was one of your absolute favorites growing up. Make lots of yummy noises.

Their developing brains will permanently associate laughing/happiness even with the less appetizing foods.

This was demostrated with the kids who survived the great depression...they continued to eat dishes like cow tongue and chicken livers until death, because they came to love them as kids as an inprinted memory of family bonding.

 Quoting: Oxi moran


Just so you know, OP, homeschooling a child in 1st-5th grade only takes about an hour a day TOTAL to cover the core stuff even more fully than in public school. Quality curriculum is not expensive, and it does all the pre-thinking and work for you. The hardest part is choosing from the huge selection available.

When I pulled my daughter from "regular school" in 4th grade, I was concerned because we were covering twice the material she was doing in regular school, but we were getting done in around an hour or a little more (depending on how many subjects we doubled up on that day, usually math and English at least, to try to make up for what they had not been covering in school in my opinion).

I was concerned that I was doing it wrong! I researched on various homeschool blogs, and they all laughed. Yep, definitely doing it right, that's really all it takes.

We're now finishing 8th grade, so it takes a few hours with all the science experiments, algebra, French, two courses of history, language, reading/literature, ACT prep, etc.

I have worked at home for many years, and there is no problem getting my work and her school work done. Sometimes we have to be flexible and work around my client needs or other fun things we want to do, but it's really quite wonderful and freeing.

Stop worrying. Seriously. You will figure it out.

I understand OP. Ignore these selfish asses that do not know the fear you have out of the depth of love you have for your family.

It is going to be OK. Stop imagining the worst. You will make it fine. Relax do the best you can and that is the best you can do. Worry will not help when you have done all you can, take pride it that and relax, go play with the kids, bubble bath time.

Re: With 3 small kids, I am freaking out right now!
Our schools were preparing the kids talking about it starting about 3 weeks back. Basic hand washing, info about viruses, potential of home schooling, this is a k-5 th grade school. Kids like structure and need a heads up if structures will be changing. The schools shut down this past Tuesday, kids sent home with work packets and online instruction info. Ltitle kids given a picture book packet explaining coronavirus.

Kids sense fear, they sense the uncertainty. I keep telling them this is new for us. We are do our best and still have fun, but it's important they follow our directions and keep fighting and complaints down.

Hardest is understanding rationing food and friends cannot come play.

My kids have runny nose, no fever, but allgery symptoms. Have vaporizers ready.
Been giving vitamin d, prebiotic and multi vit all winter. Have essential oils oregano they hate, but theives, lavender. Vitamin c drinks. Lots ofor mandrin oranges.


Outback at least an hour a day.

Youtube zoo tours, baby animass bring joy to watch.

Kids teachers are reading books and sharing videos through school fb. Nice for kids to see favorite school staff online.

Not giving too much fearfull info to k8ds. Reassure we are healthy, we are safe, we will still have fun even though different.

Take time away and fReak out in bathroom while they watch movie. Keep brave for the kids.
