10: Better Days Ahead: How to Quarantine Like a Leading Lady with My Daughter Marissa Loftus


How do your kids feel about the current crisis and being quarantined at home?  What unique challenges do they face with distance learning and the absence of in-person interaction with their friends? As parents, sometimes it’s easy to dismiss their frustrations as mundane and their worries as unrealistic.

To give us a unique perspective, I’m interviewing the other Leading Lady in my family, my daughter, Marissa Loftus. Marissa is a sophomore in high school and she is a ray of sunshine! We’re going to talk about some of the changes that we’ve made and how we’re adjusting to working and learning at home. 

In Today’s Episode We Discuss: 

  • Marissa’s life before COVID-19 and her passion for sailing 
  • The pros and cons of distance learning
  • The life of an extrovert while on quarantine
  • Dealing with the pressure to be productive all the time
  • Online interaction vs in-person interaction
  • What Marissa looks forward to when the quarantine is lifted
  • How the quarantine has affected Marissa’s college plans
  • Marissa’s advice to those who find distance learning difficult 

Having this chat with Marissa reminds me of how blessed I am as a mom. I’m so proud of how she’s staying on top of the roller coaster of emotions and challenges that we are all experiencing right now. 

She’s is truly a leading lady who lives in the moment and has the ability to see better days ahead.  

Have you sat down and talked to your kids about how they are feeling during the quarantine? It is so important to see how they are feeling and see what they are struggling with.  I hope all of you are able to use this time to grow closer to your families. It isn’t easy, but I can definitely see the blessings that have come from it. Make sure to reach out to me and let me know what you thought of the episode!
