How Comedian Roy Wood Jr. Handles Parenting During Quarantine

“This quarantine is stressing everybody.”

With cabin fever running through households amid the COVID-19 pandemic, comedian Roy Wood Jr., uploaded a video on his Twitter account Tuesday evening (March 25) to show how he and his son are dealing with the quarantine. 

Hashtagging the post #ParentalPostgame, Wood Jr. explained why parenting during quarantine is easy. 

“Are you a good Dad?” his son asks him with a microphone in hand. 

“I mean you know, we’re in unprecedented times right now and I really think that fatherhood is a moving target,” the comedian said. “I don’t think it’s fair to say that you could be a good dad or a bad dad when the truth of the matter is that fatherhood, the best you can be is trying to be a good father every day.

The Daily Show with Trevor Noah correspondent also praised himself for being thankful that interacting with his 3-year-old is effortless but if his son was in his early teenage years it might be a little more difficult. 

“I’m lucky, ‘cause all I got is a three year old,” he said. “If he was 14, 15, I’d have to fight him everyday. But I got a three-year-old, you just give ‘em chocolate milk and graham crackers and you’re pretty much in the game for the most day.”
