Parents would often think that work and school will give them some respite from their kids. After all, raising kids is no easy job. Today, with the coronavirus making the rounds and spreading fear, schools have started shutting down all over the world. Because of this, a lot of parents have found themselves in an inevitable position of working while their kids are in close proximity.
Complaints and jokes are now flooding social media about how parents try to balance their work with the kids at home. But there is always someone somewhere who makes the most hilarious jokes about the current situation. In this case, that person is IPS Officer Pankaj Nain who posted on Twitter. Along with hilarious pictures, Officer Nain shares a few tips for parents on how to handle the issue.
Just last night, Officer Nain took to the social media platform to share a light-hearted post on how to deal with noisy or mischievous kids. This post was mainly for parents trying hard to focus on their work. He wrote, "For those who are finding it difficult to work from home."
Then he added two emojis with a laughing face at the end together with a photo that left many really amused. In the picture, you can see a mother working on the computer and at the bottom of the screen, you can see her children with ropes tied to their hands and feet. Of course, this photo was obviously staged but it was hilarious nonetheless.
This simple tweet has garnered more than 1,800 likes and over a dozen comments shortly after getting posted. This was soon followed by another funny tip for parents who have brought their work home due to the current crisis. This time, it was a video that he shared on Twitter about a dad who tried to camouflage himself into a couch when his daughter came to search for him.
For this, Mr. Naim included another funny caption along with the video that said, "Working from home is not an easy job, it requires a lot of creativity." Both of these posts have garnered hundreds of amusing reactions and comments. By this time, there have already been countless parents on social media who have complained about trying to work when their children keep disrupting them. Mr. Nain's hilarious tweets have provided them some much-needed comic relief during these trying times.
For the most obvious reasons, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in the USA on Sunday has recommended against any gatherings of 50 or more people over the next 60 days. In the subcontinent of India, the states have closed down colleges, schools, cinema halls, and malls for the next couple of weeks.
Weekly markets or gatherings of over 50 people have been strictly banned in Delhi. The same goes with gyms, swimming pools, and nightclubs. These measures are strictly enforced and public health officials have also recommended social distancing to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. One video that is currently going viral explains how simple social distancing can save many lives.
