Coronavirus: ‘Be kind’ to yourselves, home-school parents told

According to BBC, parents have been urged to “be kind to yourself and your children” during the coronavirus pandemic, by Wales’ education minister.

Many are home-schooling as schools are closed to all but the children of key workers and vulnerable children.

Ms Williams said parents should give themselves “a break” and “not be too harsh” on themselves.

The minister was speaking at the Welsh Government’s daily news conference, at which she said just three-and-a-half thousand children were currently attending school, around 1% of the school population in Wales.
