Oh my gosh. What a perfect question! Wish I saw it sooner. I feel ya. I have two teens and they both ask me regularly if they can meet up with friends. It seems that some parents are like me, taking lock down seriously and others who may not be or not paying careful attention to their kids. I expressed to my kids that the social distancing will ONLY work if we DO it. That's it. I give in to a lot more video game time than usual and luckily, they can face time, use google hang outs, or x box live to connect with friends.
How's it going now? Have you held firm?
