The Times is looking for stories of teen parents juggling caring for their own children during the pandemic while also dealing with the unique challenges of remote schooling.
The pandemic is placing enormous burdens on many parents, including lack of child care, loss of community and strains on their own mental health. If you are a parent who is also a teenager, attending school remotely, conducting your social life online and perhaps also trying to prepare for college, we would like to hear your story.
If you’re willing to be interviewed and photographed about your experience, tell us below: How are you navigating this terrain? What does your day-to-day routine look like? Have aspects of your life been put on hold? Has there been a toll on your mental health or has this experience been a positive one? If your story is chosen, a reporter will be in touch.
