Hi folks!

My kid loves insects and pets, he is really into nature. And he is really glad that this pandemic gave him a lot of time studying them, collecting them, observing them. Well at first it is fine with me but as then days, weeks, few months I am getting stressed with it. I feel that he lets pests get into the house - especially ants, though he have containers for them. But still I feel stressed and a bit irritated. I don't know if I am overreacting especially that this Covid19 isolation / lockdown is bringing struggles.

Did you experience the same? Your thoughts or advice?

Explore things with your kid so you can fully understand what he is doing and the how excited he is in dealing with insects and pets - then I'm sure you wont be stressed anymore. Besides, being close to nature is one way to get strong immunity against the virus. So just enjoy things with your kid.

Thanks! I also realized that. A professional also shared an article (https://www.who.int/campaigns/connecting-the-world-to-combat-coronavirus/healthyathome?gclid=CjwKCAiAz4b_BRBbEiwA5XlVVhQGFO7yxr3cTh1PGYWf6rPRmaJys6QOt1d3iFEsU7OXYg_Ly1BL4BoCBA8QAvD_BwE) regarding Covid stress and anxiety and parenting. And you are right mate - I should enjoy things with my son and in that way I could release stress. :)

Thanks a lot!

It is getting better. Thanks for asking @whitecharger. I am adjusting at the same time enjoying my time with him. Little did I know, that he knows a lot of things regarding insects and animals. I am proud. :D

Hi everyone!

We discussed this issue with the children for a long time and in the end decided to make them a small "summer house" where they did all this. The moment of construction was also fun and the children liked it. Now they have a new passion, snowboarding (it's snowing here). It seems that I have to build a special track for them ...

Why do you over react to this? Mi kid Laura is also very fond of nature, pets and small animals.
