Mother chooses option to keep son at home for virtual learning – NBC 7 San Diego

Many parents who could barely wait to get back into their routine, sent their students back to campus this week for in-person instruction, while others decided to keep their children at home.

There are many reasons. Perhaps he likes distance education. Maybe their children need it while working at home. A normal Heights mother stated that she is keeping her son at home because he has already lost so much due to COVID-19.



Eight-year-old Giovanni is a second grader who continues to do distance education at home.

“He has everything on his mind, worrying about going to school.” “How do I expect my child to be worried or worried?”

Carmona and his son both had COVID-19 in November.

“It was very intense for me and my symptoms were the worst I’ve experienced,” she said. His son was a symptom.

When they were both diagnosed with COVID-19, Giovanni’s grandmother died of the disease, as did any other family member.

Carmona’s concern. Can her son be reunited? If he is a symptom, can he spread it to others without knowing it?

“Perhaps older children do not have symptoms, and how do we know?” Taking the temperature is not enough because he (Giovanni) did not have the temperature. I’m just cautious, “Carmona said.

Giovanni is an only child and Carmona said he has a good support system at home and at work. She knows that not everyone can make the same decision.

“I can only imagine being the child of other parents, and want to go back to school, because yes, it is needed,” she said.

Since there has been no vaccination of the children yet, Carmona said she does not want to take the risk.

“I’d rather wait,” he said.
