There may be no one more ready for the COVID-19 quarantine to end completely and life to pick back up where it left off than moms and dads. Between homeschooling, keeping the little ones occupied, feeding them, cleaning up after them, dealing with tantrums — and, oh yeah, that thing called “work,” it’s another tiring full-time job. A new survey conducted by The Harris Poll echoes that sentiment. Researchers say nearly half of parents with children under 18 are battling severe stress as coronavirus restrictions wear on.
The American Psychological Association and The Harris Poll have started a new monthly survey to try and understand the effect the coronavirus pandemic is having on the stress levels of American adults. They recently published the results of their first “Stress In America” survey, which was conducted between April 24 and May 4, 2020.
The survey of 3,013 adults shows that parents of kids younger than 18 are the most stressed: 46% of this segment rates their stress levels at least an 8 out of 10. Conversely, just 28% of respondents who don’t have children under 18 report feeling the same way.
“For many parents, it can feel overwhelming to face competing demands at home and work along with possible financial challenges during this unprecedented crisis,” says Arthur C. Evans Jr., Ph.D., American Psychological Association CEO, in a statement. “Children are keen observers and often notice and react to stress or anxiety in their parents, caregivers, peers, and community. Parents should prioritize their self-care and try their best to model healthy ways of coping with stress and anxiety.”

[Ed note: This is an interesting and concerning article from Rob Toews, an author on Forbes.com, who writes about artificial intelligence matters. The gist of this article is that AI technologies that allow for "deepfakes" are making it more difficult to determine truth from fabrications, and may wreak havoc in domestic political and geopolitical spheres. Just a brief excerpt is included below, and you can read the entire article by clicking on the source link. The article is well worth a few minutes of time to read.]
Last month during ESPN’s hit documentary series The Last Dance, State Farm debuted a TV commercial that has become one of the most widely discussed ads in recent memory. It appeared to show footage from 1998 of an ESPN analyst making shockingly accurate predictions about the year 2020.
As it turned out, the clip was not genuine: it was generated using cutting-edge AI. The commercial surprised, amused, and delighted viewers.
What viewers should have felt, though, was deep concern.
The State Farm ad was a benign example of an important and dangerous new phenomenon in AI: deepfakes. Deepfake technology enables anyone with a computer and an Internet connection to create realistic-looking photos and videos of people saying and doing things that they did not actually say or do.
