While I know that we all need to practice physical distancing at all times, I'm having trouble doing it perfectly. I live on a street which is tiny and cramped and has kids on it. When I walk out my door, there are my neighbours 10 feet away on their own property. I love all my neighbours. I have a kid too and our kids play together--not all day but sometimes on weekends. They ride bikes, play hockey or soccer on the street and are trying to stay 6 feet away from each other but it's not perfect. The only way to do this perfectly would be to yank my kid inside the house each time someone else comes out. I have taken my kid to the park etc. but there are always more kids at the park than on my street. Plus, kids at the park are all strangers, not like the bubble of 4 families of neighbours who all know each other. They say it takes a village to raise a child and my little street is a village. I find that taking my kid to the park comes with more risks than letting them play on the street where everyone is known to them.
So, I'm not a perfect physical distancer but am doing my best. But if there are other insights or advice that people have, I would like to hear it.
