Grandparents build a virtual school treehouse for their grandson

Many students, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, are learning virtually during the 2020-2021 school year. Whether they attend a virtual academy for all of their grades or attend school on a staggered schedule, kids are spending some, if not all, of their days at home. For some children, including my son, it is difficult.

Homeschooling can become mundane and claustrophobic. It’s isolated and lonely compared to what kids are used to and it’s hard to know what to do to help a seemingly hopeless situation. But, if your grandparents are ex-teachers and recognize how stressful and difficult this whole situation can be, you might find that you really like virtual learning, because they built you a treehouse. .

That’s exactly what West Terre Haute, IN grandparents Mike and Kathy Miller did for their grandson Reese. They built him an amazing space to make his school days fun and different, rather than staying inside the house all day. In fact, he goes to school in their backyard with Grandma Kathy as his tutor.

The Miller family is a very special family that I have known for many years. We all grew up together. Their family always supports each other. You feel love just in their presence and you see it when you look at their family photos. Reese’s mom, Robbin, who was a few years younger than me in high school, shared these photos with me. Looked!

Grandparents build a virtual schoolhouse to make their grandson’s learning experience more fun

We should all be more like Mike and Kathy Miller. Maybe you can’t build a treehouse for your kids or grandkids to go to school, but you can go the extra mile to understand their situation. Always try to be understanding and patient. Give them everything you can to help them succeed now and after the pandemic is over. It is hard for all of us, especially for our children.
