I have a 9 year old and his school started remote classes this week...I cannot get him to pay attention for more than five or ten minutes at a time. Any suggestions to fix this?

What's the most efficient way to incorporate breaks into the day now for my kids? I'm having a hard time transitioning them from work vs. break time esp being cooped up at home all day now

I’m trying but failing to keep my kids’ days structured so when they go back to school eventually, they’ll be able to focus. Any advice? My partner and I both work full time, I can’t teach full-time.

What are some things that my children can't learn in a remote setting and how can we help teach them? I'm thinking of ideas that are learned in more social situations and diverse environments.

As a parent, I'm curious about how you think the quality of education is now differing with the remote learning? Do you think this is a degradation of 25%? 50%? Or are there some benefits?

Teachers are doing a great work supporting families during remote learning, however I am afraid the quality of education is not going to be the same. What are your thoughts on the next school year?

I work in a fairly poor district, where lots of kids don't have access to laptops or computers at home. Can you recommend some resources or work-arounds?
