Drew Barrymore stated that she cries every day all day since the school lockdown that happened after the coronavirus outbreak and having to home school he children every day.
First of all, Barrymore concentrated on finding a proper routine with her two kids Olive, seven, and Frankie, five: “Go on a bike ride, take a car ride, break out the choc and do hop-scotch, board games, do seeding things in little cups and make signs and be inventive,” Barrymore stated”. “And then school started. And it all went out the window, I cried every day, all day long.”

“It was like every church and state, it was the messiest plate I’ve ever held in my life. I had to be the teacher, the parent, the disciplinarian, the caretaker,” Barrymore stated.
“I didn’t think I needed to respect and appreciate teachers any more than I did,” Barrymore claimed. “Then you start to get some systems and you see people on social media making lists and you’re like I don’t want to make lists! It’s never going to work that way. And then you find your way. We’re resilient people.”
Barrymore also talked about how she is dealing with lockdown: “The week one, I was paralyzed, honestly.” Barrymore said she was avoiding social media and to replace it, she started a blog.
“There’s a great quote, which is: ‘Insecurity is loud, confidence is quiet.’ And I thought as I fight my way to confidence in this time because I really didn’t know how to act or react, it was all so new and unknown and scary,” Barrymore added.
