Solitude is an Old Friend
People are complaining about going stir-crazy during social-distancing. They're struggling to homeschool their children and worry their children will fall behind educationally.
I was homeschooled for over 7 years and am an only child. I adore socializing, but I also find peace in solitude. This experience may be good for both children and their parents: Children are learning how to self-motivate, develop their imaginations, and are self-reflecting. In my opinion, self-reflection is an important skill that is more difficult to develop without alone time. Parents have more time to get to know their children and learn who they really are, how they learn, what topics they really light-up about, and make beautiful memories. I'm sure it's difficult, and I know finances and emotions are strained, but it will all be okay, and this period will allow everyone to grow.
It's wicked, but I'm mildly glad this is happening. When I was homeschooled, peers and adults alike chastised my parents. They (and I) were told I'd be uneducated, unsociable and unable to survive. I'd be useless.
Yet I graduated college Magna cum laude, am happy and thriving.
Parents, you will be fine. Your children will be fine. I'm sure you're doing great! :)
