  1. This happen because they want to win this election and have not cooperated with Trump to fight Pandemic. Look Australia all of the opposite parties, religion, polices, people…. have cooperated and obey their Pri minister’ orders. While the democrat party always disturbed and against Trump. That is the main reason to make pandemic more and more developed. Do not claim Trump .they iggnoredvand took advantage pandemic to win this election.The truth must return the truth

  2. Imho… we should keep all of the high schoolers home learning remotely and spread out all of the elementary and middle school students across all building’s and buses… we had a epidemic with bullying, school shootings and suicide before the Global Pandemic 😷

  3. Its everyone…our children are the future and need to be given hope and know that we as parents will never give up. Talking about the fears and the negatives, the past people educated their children and now is a time to teach them to have
    faith and neighbor hood and community support is also needed.

  4. Or watching all of this but aren’t hungry, etc… it’s important to realize how children think… not just the losses… but feelings over not having the same level of losses.

  5. There is no more normal. You can't lose education when you have years of life ahead of you to learn.

  6. So many of these comments ignore how children actually learn.
    Delusional to think sitting alone on a computer is all there is to education and a child's learning or school.
    40% are flunking. Hello?

  7. The faint fair creature bioinformatically comb because women seemingly rely afore a delirious cupboard. foregoing, muddled turkey

  8. Open the schools.
    It is sickening, criminal, to hurt them when they barely transmit, get sick or die from this.
    Hire young, healthy monitors and at least keep the kids' and families' routines intact having them online AT school.

    And by the way: the homelessness has BARELY STARTED, the moritorium on evictions extends to January.

  9. Kids don't have affect from covid they are being affected by the fear mongering from msm and government shutdown over a virtue with a 99% survival rate

  10. …They'll be just fine, as were countless children throughout the ages who survived & even thrived after enduring Slavery; the Great Depression, The Holocaust, & countless other plagues, famines, natural disasters, & pandemics.

    The reason being is that they will have no other choice, for necessity is the Mother of invention. Children are remarkably resilient and resourceful primarily due to an utter lack of options.
    This applies even to those who are completely sheltered from harm, poverty, & the misfortune of their poorer counterparts.

    Make no mistake that this pandemic will be difficult & have its lasting effects on children, but it's alright to weigh in on the side of optimism when all is said and done instead of complete & utter gloom and doom.

  11. It’s not covid, it’s the satanic restrictions

  12. I’m afraid for my family to continue living in the United States. Our leaders lie to us, they consistently prove their interests are in amassing personal wealth at the expense of our livelihood. I don’t want my children to live here, knowing they’re almost certainly going to struggle to have the necessities to live.

  13. So Nice 💘💘💘💘💘💘

  14. Then Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples: “The teachers of the law and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat. So you must be careful to do everything they tell you. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach. They tie up heavy, cumbersome loads and put them on other people’s shoulders, but they themselves are not willing to lift a finger to move them.
    Everything they do is done for people to see: They make their phylacteries wide and the tassels on their garments long; they love the place of honor at banquets and the most important seats in the synagogues; they love to be greeted with respect in the marketplaces and to be called ‘Rabbi’ by others.
    “But you are not to be called ‘Rabbi,’ for you have one Teacher, and you are all brothers. And do not call anyone on earth ‘father,’ for you have one Father, and he is in heaven. Nor are you to be called instructors, for you have one Instructor, the Messiah. The greatest among you will be your servant. For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted".
    (Matthew 23 NIV)

    You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything, in Heaven above or in the Earth beneath, or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them, for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents up to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.
    "If my people who are called by my name, humble themselves and pray, AND TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS, I will hear from Heaven, will forgive their sins, and will heal their land."

    And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.

    This, then, is how you should pray:

    Our Father in heaven,
    hallowed be your name,
    your kingdom come,
    your will be done,
    on earth as it is in heaven.
    Give us today our daily bread.
    And forgive us our debts,
    as we also have forgiven our debtors.
    And lead us not into temptation,
    but deliver us from the evil one.

    For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.

    "Matthew 5-7 NIV Bible Gateway", we can use google search.
    These are the teachings,
    The Righteousness of our Lord Jesus Christ our God.
    REPENT, and start doing what is right.
    If you abide my teachings, you are really my disciples; then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.

    A time is coming and has now come, that the true worshipers will worship the Father in Spirit and Truth. God is Spirit, so his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and Truth; they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks.

    In the New Heaven and New Earth,
    only Righteousness dwells.
    May the Spirit of our Lord Jesus Christ our God be with you all.

  15. COV19 pandemic the direct result of incompetence & neglect at every level, President on down. Borders should have closed. Wuhan & Italy implsed quarantine by that time.

  16. I'm in mental health and this is devastating to our young so you would think PARENTS and these anti maskers would say OK, gotta do this for the kids but they just won't.. It shows how the people in this country on one side just don't care about their fellow man.. It's been shown that kids that get this virus are now suffering from myocarditis, especially those that are athletes.. Just wear a mask, get the vaccine when available so we can.. You guys say the children are our future so ACT LIKE IT!!

  17. My school is closed because of COVID-19 in March I'm was stressed out my school was closed I'm glad I graduated from my school

  18. One state one law🌍🌏🌎

  19. So the kids that went through the Great Depression never survived. . . Wait a minute they became the Greatest Generation.

    Maybe adversity will about resilience.

  20. its probably all the drugs parents and doctors pump into them

  21. Mental Health who will talk about it or who will be on meds and the cycle of addiction will begin again… Stop saying mental health some parents are easy manipulated to get kids on meds that are addictive and so on…..

  22. This whole generation of kids are being robbed of their childhood and education. The ramifications are yet to appear.

  23. Correction: "Covid showing lasting effects on EVERYONE'S mental health"

  24. This is a good opportunity to make some changes to better suit younger people and students. What if we make school start later and still end at 3? That would make stress a whole lot less stressful since if school started at say, 9 am at the earliest, that would enable a higher brain function in young students.

    To make up those lost hours, eat into the summer vacation a bit. Start vacation sooner and end sooner to still have a break, but decrease the summer brain drain. School would be shorter daily, but over a longer period of time.

    Another way is to for sure increase the number of social workers and support staff in schools at every level. Those school districts should lay a little extra so that they won’t have a large portion of stressed out, overwhelmed, failing students and lose federal and state funding.

    Reform the subjects in schools and what is in those subjects. This could be done by diversifying each concept in math for example. One specific 30 minute class for circular and spherical geometry, one 30 minute for parallelogram geometry. This would allow for students who could test out of classes who already know the concepts. This would also allow students to better build a school day that fits their wants and needs, as long as they meet the minimum requirements to graduate( pass a certain level class of math, or English, or history, etc) they would qualify to graduate.

    This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to reform or education system to be cleaner, more efficient, and provide an environment to foster people and students who want to learn more, and are eager to go to school every day.

  25. Reject this nonsense. Covid is a lie.

  26. Best place to ask advice is the homeless and how they survive… they can do it with nothing how and why cant people with homes do it… have we lost so much survival instinct ??? if that`s the case what if something more lethal/faster paced virus comes along ???
    10 month and we panic what if the next one has the same rate as COVID but in weeks not months what then ???
    Seriously you need to learn from it as new way of life present and a possible future living in the past will not help…….
    As for blame games that`s a childish way to respond because with a virus there is no teacher, mum, cop to say ` he/she/country did it ` viruses don't care….

  27. we don't need to send kids to a building to get an education, they can learn on their computer at home and then they don't get shot or sick

  28. We need to support our kids emotionally and spiritually, but we also need to challenge them to the importance of sacrifice and bravery. We need to champion young people of other times like Anne Frank who suffered and tried to maintain hope in the worst of times. Suffering comes to all every few years. Life is much more than school friends and athletics. The entertainment industry could do much to inspire children with movies of children who showed tenacity and courage in dire times.

  29. Children of the world need the Holy Spirit Mind of Christ Jesus , mans Spirit mind is sick and needs the True Physician to Rebirth the Spirit Mind of man or plagues will over take him . The Spirit of man has forsaken Christ for the gain of this world .


  31. And it's all the democrats and chinas fault awwww stop fake caring about a pandemic you caused

  32. One thing to stop doing is to continue to expect to “return to normal”. Quit giving kids that expectation so that they aren’t continuously disappointed. Do your best to teach your kids about change, being grateful for what you have, and tell them things some day it will get better even if it is different.

  33. dont need the schools dont do enny GOOD!!!!!! call up on JEUS NOW!!!! that wat thay need NOW!!!!!!!!!!

  34. -Any vaccine at this stage of the pandemic will have little to No benefit whatsoever!
    -What is going on right now, is known in epidemiology as the pathogen endemic equilibrium phase of the pandemic (viral stasis) The absolute only reason case numbers are so high, is because the PCR mass testing, are picking up old, fragmented virus messenger RNA or other contaminated genetic material in the throat/nasal swab. Resulting in an overwhelmingly high false positive ratio that has zero to do with having any active infection whatsoever. (Each and every year during this period, Hospitalizations and ICU's are stretched to the limits and beyond.)
    This is Criminal, if they stopped the testing today, the pandemic would literally be over tomorrow. This one factor alone, is driving the false data and mass hysteria, NOT science!

    Normally it takes 10 years to safety approve a vaccine, this one came out 9 years early to understand its proper safety level. That is basic vaccine microbiology 101. This is utter madness fueled by hysteria, based on zero science or rational logic! SARS-COV-2 is a ubiquitous virus, now known by the empirical data, to have a virulence of (Naught point one, four.) Or an overall survival rate of aprox. 99.6 – 99.8%. That is on par with a bad flu season and nothing more.

    ( Prof. Briddle, viral immunology, university of Guelph Ont.

  35. If the school life pressure wasn't ingrained from day 1 they wouldn't be stressed they would be kids and not robots….. start treating kids as kids not something that can be ordered around or in later years a money machine with crippling debt.

  36. Democrats need to give it up already.

  37. All of this plus having to think about the mortality of everyone they love- I feel for our kids. It's a lot to take on so young

  38. Love you 💋💋😘😘❤️💯

  39. I feel so disgusted with what humans have done to children. Don't act surprised. People choose to ignore the negative impacts on children, including the Teacher's Union.,

  40. Oh yeah. Do you love me? 😍💋 💝💖❤️
