One Mom’s Comics Capture Distance Learning in All Its Glory

Advertisement

We’re all coping with 2020 in our own ways. Some of us are drinking, some of us are screaming into pillows or crying in the shower, and some of us are grabbing tight to any personal outlet of creativity we can muster the energy to use.

For author, illustrator, and mother of two Adrienne Hedger, that means shifting the subject of her beloved comics to capture the insanity of working from home while your kids are learning from home.

Here are 12 of my personal favorites.

12. Yeah the answer is no.

How about you stop asking.

11. You have to assume someone’s camera is always on.

It’s taking spying to a whole new level.

10. There’s just so much to manage.

Take a deep breath.

9. I’m with the kid on this one.

Time has no meaning.

8. This is known.

It happens to the best of us.

7. This has been the best part of Zoom.

You know I’m right.

6. Bless elementary school teachers.

All of the time, but especially now.

5. And yet you do handle it.

Because I mean, what choice do we have?

4. It is a time-honored tradition.

Whether in person or online.

3. If you can help, please do.

Some struggles might be greater than your own.

2. I think we all know the answer to that.

Kids, am I right? And yet you kind of identify.

1. Why are they like this?

Oh, right, because they’re your kids.

I think we can all relate to these!
