I worry about the kids
Sat May 01 2021
My child is athletic. He thrives on team participation and hasn't been able to exercise regularly, see his team mates in person or train for his chosen outdoor sport. Normally a great student, he is feeling unmotivated, struggles with depression, hates online school and sitting at a computer all day, and is isolated from seeing friends and school mates. Virtual training with the team is similarly awful. And now all recreational amenities are closed, even for practice with your Mom or Dad.
We are privileged to be safe and healthy, but seeing my child suffer is so hard when we know that safely run outdoor activities are low risk and high benefit. Listen to the science and let children play sports.
