Parenting is almost never easy, and since the start of the pandemic, many working parents have found it even more challenging to juggle home schooling, work and family fun with other commitments.
But don't worry! Help is at hand.
Try some of these resources if you are looking for inspiration and fresh ideas - or just to remind you that you're not alone in finding things difficult, and that you're probably already doing many of the right things.
- Our friends at Talking Talent - Enterprise's partner that helps us with our parental coaching - have uploaded a number of useful videos with information on pandemic parenting as well as mental health and well being.
- Check out the BBC website Parents' Toolkit for bitesize hints and tips.

Don't forget that you can always chat to your line manager, mental health first aider, THRIVE team member or human resources if you want more specific help.

This is provided through our partners, Parental Choice and Your Employee Wellbeing.
