Many working parents are panicking as they struggle to figure out how to juggle remote learning for their children with the rigors of maintaining full-time jobs.

Not long ago, a parent in our congregation expressed similar concerns regarding Christian education for their children. Parents are also concerned about their children’s spiritual needs as a part of caring for the family’s regular day-to-day needs.

The concern lies with their ability to keep everything in their daily routine running smoothly without neglecting their kids or their work responsibilities.

Over half, 54%, of working parents express guilty feelings because they can’t fully care for their children, while 43% report feeling guilty when they’re caring for their families because they’re not focusing on their work responsibilities, according to Catalyst’s recent survey of 1,000 U.S. working parents of school-aged children.
