I am a graduate student in coursework, and I am also the parent of a 2-year-old. With offices and daycares closed due to COVID-19, my typical workday is shortened and often interrupted with requests to walk to the park, read a book, or get a snack. I bring this up not as a complaint, however; I find the time I spend parenting to be one of the most meaningful and enjoyable parts of my day. Perhaps the only silver lining of quarantine has been that it has forced me to spend less time on work and more time with my son. I’ve lately found myself genuinely thankful for this, and yet at the same time, it’s hard to shake the sense that I should somehow feel guilty for prioritizing parenting over research.
