Pandemic Parenting, Part I

We're talking about Pandemic Parenting. We will be talking about the compromises we’ve had to make, the hard decisions we’ve had to take, and also, more importantly, the reminder that we are enough and that blaming ourselves for not being able to be as ‘productive’ means that we let structures off the hook. In Part I of our 2 part pandemic parenting series, we're talking with Dr. Sheila Colla (@https://www.twitter.com/savewildbees (SaveWildBees)), Associate Professor in the Faculty of Environment and Urban Change at York University, about the expectations of academia while raising kids in a pandemic, and how science isn't as always as objective as it likes to say it is.
