Honestly, agreed. So sick of people looking for loopholes and whinging about being at home. Get over yourselves and stfu about it. If you don't care about your own health and safety, at least have the decency to think of others. Your stupid, selfish, pissy "I'm such a victim because I/my active kids have to stay home" is revolting and pathetic. It's really not that hard, ffs!
I am truly astounded by OP's pitiful behaviour and poor excuses.
Ignore all these self righteous idiots. Yes two teens can go for a bike ride together, making sure they keep about 2m apart. I would also time limit it, say an hour or so and then they need to go back to their own homes. They cld do this everyday so they can keep some sort of normalcy going and keep their bodies and minds moving.
The advice is if you do not have a legitimate reason to be out, ie food, medicine, work, exercise (alone or with family, not friends) then you need to stay at home.
They can go for a ride together! For fu**s sake, someone from my small costal town, published a pic on Facebook of people from the same household (!) going for a swim at one of the local beaches. There were three families, about 50-100m from each other. And everybody shaming them for being outside!
My understanding is that they can but still need to keep their distance. A friend and I have told our teens that they can hang out for a few hours every now and then once we've completed our full 2 week isolation. As for the other party, I feel you have to trust that they've been doing the right thing as well and are not infected 😊
I love it when people use the 'mental health card' to be selfish. Honestly your kid is a teen, they are old enough to understand what is going on. I have 2 teens who are keeping in contact with friends and family via
- their school/ class discussion board
-old school letters/ notes
-facetime/ disc call
Things that they are doing in our house/ backyard for exercise
-practicing dance routine
(Heaps of exercise/ dancing vids online that your daughter could do with her friend via facetime).
You are ridiculous
Someone gave you suggestions and you immediately focused on the things from that list that you can't do! If you really want to help your kids you need to change your mindset. Don't focus on all the things that you can't do, all the people that you can't see or all the places that you can't go instead redirect your focus to the things you can do, ways to keep in touch with friends/ family and make plans of places you want to go when this is over. Good luck.
