Hong Kong has started its fifth wave more than a month ago and parents have been in survival mode all around. Home schooling is one issue but the biggest issue is kids being stuck at home. Playgrounds are closed and the government is urging parents to stay home with their kids. Some parents are signing up for zoom classes for their kids in hopes to occupy their time while the parents themselves are working from home.
We have been invited to do a Facebook Live session with HKMomtrepreneur on Friday March 4th at 10 PM HKT to talk about the challenges parents are facing and share some tips and tricks to help them during this time.

It’s a no frill and by all means, not a complete list but we hope this is a good start to give parents some ideas.Read More
