Jacob Baranski | Parenting During the Pandemic

Time is the most valuable currency we have, and the least transferable. You (and I, and everyone) have a limited amount of it, and we are using it all the time. Sometimes we spend it wisely, and sometimes it is wasted, but the amount we have is always going down.

Pandemic Parenting: Spending Time in Difficult Times

Something I think that almost all parents would agree with is that the Covid-19 pandemic has really messed up our sense of time. It seems to move both way too fast and much too slowly. Time is the most valuable currency we have, and the least transferable. You (and I, and everyone) have a limited amount of it, and we are using it all the time. Sometimes we spend it wisely, and sometimes it is wasted, but the amount we have is always going down.

And it isn’t just the amount of time we have over the course of our lives that we are spending. As parents, we will, at some point or another, be faced with the fact that our kids aren’t just kids anymore. This is why parenting is so terrifying and so rewarding. They’re excitable kids, chaotic adolescents, confused teens, and young adults full of potential. Children get older, and we have a limited amount of time to guide and raise them before they will go off to be adults with the own lives.
