Restorative Exercise Breaks Between Stimulating Remote Learning Classes:
It has been said that because of recent world events: in the war between the screens and the not-screens, the screens have definitely triumphed.
Our sons have never been convinced of the goodness of exercise or the merits of outdoor activities.
And the harder I am selling something, the harder the pass.
I would like to say these things are a recent development, but, no they’re not.
My ability to form memories was severely compromised by extreme sleep deprivation for many years during their early childhood....but I can clearly recall our first son prone on the floor wailing, “I HATE OUTSIDE!” when he was a toddler trying to avoid a trip to the playground.
So this stay-home-all-day-with-your-WIFI hasn’t exactly been the kids’ worst nightmare come true.
Though after a month, there have been suggestions that they might actually miss going to school.
Exercise, probably not so much.
