Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel are quarantining in their house in Montana. White trying to flatten the curve, the parents are struggling with ’24-hour parenting.’
The middle and lower class have made it abundantly clear that they are fed up with the upper class complaining about being isolated when they have access to many things that are unobtainable to the average person.
Schools are shut down for most of the country while parents are either out of work or forced to work from home. Between struggling to work remotely with school-aged children distracting them to becoming frustrated with the sudden burden of homeschooling — most people don’t have the luxury of having a place that keeps kids busy or hiring virtual tutors.

Timberlake recently spoke on Sirius XM’s The Morning Mash Up about what they’re currently up to with their 5-year-old son.
‘We’re doing good. We’re mostly commiserating over the fact that 24-hour parenting is just not human.’
To no one’s surprise, this did not go over well with social media commentators on the US Weekly Facebook page that posted the article.
‘…twenty-four hour parenting is just not human.” Glad they stopped at one kid if this is how he feels. Hope they keep it that way,’ said one.
‘Try having a special needs child. You and everyone else are having a hard time!! Give me a break,’ said another.
This special needs mom offered her opinion: ‘Try having a special needs child. You and everyone else are having a hard time!! Give me a break!’
There were a few who also defended the couple,
‘Y’all are ridiculous. Do you not have babysitters? How are you adjusting now that you can’t take your kids to the sitter or ANYWHERE for that matter? How are you adjusting to your child trying to cope with something that they certainly don’t understand? Don’t act like it’s a walk in the park for you either.’
This person offered some insight when they commented: ‘So many people on here bashing them good grief. Look I love and adore my kid but normally i get a break when he is at school and I’m at work. And we have been together for weeks straight without being able to have a break so I get it.’
What do you think about this matter?
