The shape of things to come in a world of Covid-19.

THERE are two types of parents in this Covid-19 crisis: those who are baking banana bread and helping their kids make 3D models of the Eiffel Tower out of toilet roll tubes, and the rest of us.

Muddling through. Exhausted, overwhelmed, barely managing to get from one day to the next.

If teachers, fairly or unfairly, are fast becoming the villains of the virus for some people in Northern Ireland, it's because working parents are under incredible pressure.
