Parenting And Working From Home During A Pandemic? You Can Do It!

Jan Dubauskas is the Vice President of

Simultaneously working from home and parenting during a global health pandemic is a challenge none of us were expecting to face. To call it stressful is an understatement. It requires adapting to a totally different environment, learning new software tools and collaborating differently with colleagues.

Many of us are also working at home with a spouse or partner, who is experiencing the same real-time adjustments and stresses. While it can be exciting and refreshing to work alongside one another, it’s also a significant adjustment for both people. With summer coming to a close, many working parents are undoubtedly anxious for their kids to head back to school. But even that will come with new challenges, as most students will still spend a lot of time doing “virtual learning” at home.

In the spring, distance learning was difficult for parents and kids.

Coronavirus Pandemic Has Led To A Home Improvement Business Boom

MIAMI (CBSMiami) – The coronavirus pandemic has been difficult for many businesses, but those involved with home improvement are thriving.

When the pandemic started, the Levyn family found themselves at home more. They decided to renovate the backyard, including a new deck.

“You want where you live, if you have to work there and if you have young children, you want it to be as lovely as it can possibly be,” Allison Levyn says.

The Levyn’s hired a local company, MG Construction & Decks.

“Business has been crazy. It is really good,” says co-owner Melissa Gabso.

A Consumer Specialists survey found 57% of homeowners made improvements this spring. And plenty of people are doing it themselves, which is driving up sales at hardware stores.

Pandemic drives kitchen remodeling projects

People are “forced to be home” and are “sick of their kitchens,” said Alicia Molenaar, a designer and co-owner of Kitchen Fair in Willmar.

During the pandemic, Kitchen Fair has been swamped with requests from customers looking for a new look and ways to improve functionality and efficiency in their kitchens. “We are really busy,” Molenaar said.

While updating paint or adding a colorful backsplash can be handled by a weekend do-it-yourselfer, a kitchen makeover can benefit from a professional designer.

The process begins with taking measurements of an existing kitchen space and an interview with the homeowner to find out how they use their kitchen, how many people typically cook there at one time and what they want in terms of style and functionality.

Giving a kitchen a new look can be as simple as installing new hardware – where the trend is for larger handles that can fit

Did The Pandemic Destroy The World Economy As Much As We Think?

Did the pandemic destroy the world economy as much as we think. That depends on who you ask. Barclays Capital economists, led by Christian Keller, say no.

“The pandemic is not over, but (economic) activity data in recent months provided good news,” says Keller. “The growth contractions in the second quarter were typically less severe than feared and the subsequent recovery, at least in its initial phase, has surprised on the upside.”

This has been particularly true in the U.S. and in China, where the economy is on the upswing. China, in fact, is expected to register positive growth this year. It won’t be over 5%, as was expected. But it won’t be negative, either, assuming economies remain as is for
