Coronavirus: Funny Parenting Tweets Going 'Viral'
"Twitter is not a technology. It's a conversation. And it's happening with or without you." ― Charlene Li, author.

COVID-19 has been inflicting fear in the minds of people all over the world. The fact that it could affect u, or our loved ones has been weighing down heavily on our minds. In these troubled times, being a parent to hyperactive, curious children who are at home is another challenge!

With schools and colleges on an indefinite shutdown to thwart the remotest possibility of the virus affecting people, children are now indoors – all day! This has led to unending questions, boredom,  tantrums, whipping up meals at odd hours and what not! While some parents are able to tackle these situations tactfully, most of us are in a state of exasperation.

Once again, social media comes to our rescue! Many parents are now turning to Twitter to share hilarious experiences with their kids during the lockdown. Here we have lined up some of the top picks for you, and we’re sure you can relate to them too!

Warning: Readers are in danger, not of the virus, of imminent bouts of laughter. Stay safe!
