These are the stories of 15 families, told to Children’s Parliament to record and reflect on how families with children under the age of 8 have experienced the pandemic.  

In our stories, we hear from parents and children about the early days of lockdown, about life and learning at home, about understanding the changes that were made to day-to-day life and about the first weeks of the journey back to some semblance of normality, what we might think of as a period of recovery.
