Since Covid, millions of parents are working from home. Many men are reconnecting with their children. For the first time, they have a great opportunity to play, chat, read and do lots of activities with children. This will make them better human beings. They can also help in cooking, cleaning and other household chores to reduce the burden of their other half.
