Coping with life during coronavirus outbreak through the eyes of Warminster family

PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — A Warminster mother of two discusses dealing with working from home with kids and coping with the pandemic.

“Sometimes I find myself getting very teary-eyed and upset,” said Hope Jarnagin, a married mother of two.

She works in the pharmaceutical industry and has a 14-year-old daughter and a 22-year-old son with special needs. 

Keeping her family together and on track, she says, is a struggle right now. So she keeps her children busy with school work and family games. 

“I feel OK. I guess I’m pretty good at social distancing already. I do miss my school friends,” said daughter Savannah. 

“Even though I’ve got them doing things, I’m trying to get on conference calls and I’ve got video conference calls and I’ve got someone coming up from behind me with a vacuum cleaner saying 'oh mom,' ” Hope Jarnagin said. 

Through this pandemic, this family says they’ve learned something valuable. 

“They’re great family members. I have a great family and I really like them,” Savannah added.
