Q. How has your daily parenting been affected by lockdown, and how are you coping with any changes?

I felt that it wasn't necessarily appropriate for me to answer this but I really want to because parenting for me is alone and I don't have familial support. I am not supported by my son's dad or anybody actually. So I spend 24 hours a day more or less alone with my son. Sometimes my partner is here. But even that's become difficult. It was a new relationship around about six months before covid hit. And that's been affected. He spent quite substantial amount of time here during the first lockdowns and the uncertainty, because his mum was shielding and because I'm asthmatic. So that put a huge strain on both my parenting and my personal life.
