I haven't let my two out with any other smallies. They mainly play with each other anyway, so apart from missing their cousins they are doing alright.

Harder with older kids though I'm sure

Go to mytrleville and fountainstown all this weekend ..They are packed out with them.

It really comes down to personal choice. .They have been stuck in long enough. .For their mental health I'd have no problem letting them out as I believe this virus has peaked and we are seeing only the scared and hypochondriacs s are going around looking to keep us all in and keeping it hyped
Kids are 13 and 10.

Yeah I'd have no problem with them out but again it's a personal choice for parents.
Kids are mixing ..my niece 16 has gone to friends houses ..They to hers over past 2 weeks and lots more are doing same out and about. If anything immunity in the community will build up and get better

Should kids be social distancing or is it OK and should we just drive on?

If they cannot go back to school because schools are not ready for social distancing, surely we need to be more protective of kids now, no?
I think you have to make your own judgement...the families on my street all took the restrictions seriously so no one was at work, with others, no kids out on the street etc for 6-7 weeks. This weekend we let the kids play with each other and did our best to keep them at a distance. The chances of any of the families having Covid are minuscule as all have observed the guidance

There is a fine line between the benefits of further isolation and the damage it will do

Kids are social creatures.

Up to the parents really however I think many of them have enough.

Kids see the world in its true colours, they didn't cause this so "what the hell did I do?? " and may feel unduly punished.

Ethel, until a full investigation is carried out into the source of this virus I wouldn't be ruling anyone out.

They have as much to gain from this as Bill Gates.

My youngest has been social distancing, but my 19 yr old has been down the Atlantic Pond with a few cans meeting pals a couple of times now. And the eldest has had 3 of her friends around to our garden last week. Don't think they were 6 feet apart at all times But we're doing our best. Doesn't help when so many others seem to think that Social Distancing is for others but not for them
