For anyone out there struggling with the immense changes happening in our everyday lives due to the Corona virus, I found this list of agencies/organisations that will lend a helping hand:https://secretldn.com/uk-community-aid-groups-by-area/

This is amazing thanks! So glad that there are groups helping out those who are less mobile and able to get out to shop for essentials.

My kids are 15 and 11. Their chores are split between them, but they have to take out the bins, vaccum their rooms, change their sheets and help with the dishes after dinner. Oh, also feed the cat...I can't always get them to do it, but they are used to it and don't complain too much.

What chores do you make your kids do? And how willingly do they do them? I ask my children to help clear the table, make their beds and help pick up their toys but they try to wriggle out of any chore. I also feel they should do more but I can't face the battles. They're 7 and 9

How are you talking to your kids to help alleviate their worries about corona. I don't know what to say (and I'm very scared). I tell them to wash their hands but I'm not sur how to prepare them for what's to come without scaring them

I'm trying to stay calm and tell them it's a bug a bit like a cold. And that the best way to avoid catching it is to wash our hands. It's hard though as people talk about it in the playground. So far they seem to be OK and not worried too much. I shield them from the news and try not to talk about my own fears in front of them.

What time does your child go to bed? And what time do they actually go to sleep? Do you worry that it’s too late?

My eldest is 15 and she goes to bed at 10 now. My son is 11, and he's in bed at 9, but both used to go to bed much earlier when they were younger.
