Welcome back to PSA Thursday, a mostly-weekly segment in which we talk about how to handle money, work, and life in the middle of a pandemic.
At the beginning of the month, we interviewed two teachers, Rob Phelan and Mandy Bert, for their perspective on what lies ahead for schools.
Now, as summer break ends, we turn to Andy Hill, father of two and founder of Marriage, Kids, and Money, for his perspective on how to avoid parental burnout.
Here’s what we discuss:
- How Andy, his wife, and his kids made it through a startling transition back in March
- Andy went into full-time entrepreneur mode in January, and his wife’s hours were drastically cut in March
- What Andy’s family did when their summer camp plans fell through
- The importance of making a schedule for your family, even if it’s a cobbled-together schedule
- How Andy and his family are preparing for the upcoming school season
- The different schooling options parents in Andy’s community are exploring
- Andy’s best tips for parents handling the kids-going-back-to-school transition
- The creative solutions Andy and his community implemented for their kids to safely play together
- What didn’t work for Andy and his family throughout lockdown
- How Andy organizes his day as an entrepreneur who faces the reality of frequent workday interruptions
