The pandemic completely changed, not only how we interact with each other, but how we work and how we go about our daily lives. It became more challenging to find that balance between being a parent and being a provider.
Senator Risa Hontiveros talks about how she and her children try to make sure that their home has a separate space for work and for rest. "Nawala 'yung demarcation," she said in an interview with Summit Media journalists.
"I can't forget when my kids were living with me and working from home, one of them said, 'Ma, you know, I can't stop working because I'm always at home.'"
The senator and solo mom realized she was doing the same. "Ako rin, I just stop to eat. I realized, at the end of the day, I've been working non-stop," she shared.
