I'm on a mission to find a frenzied, freaked-out parent. One who is so overwhelmed by their children going back to school in these 'uncertain times', they're wandering about with their shoes on the wrong feet.

So far, my search has been fruitless. When my daughter started school this week, I didn't see any parents burning up, with smoke emanating from their heads. Most, like me, were thrilled their children were back, getting the education they badly needed.
