Everybody has different feelings about going back to ‘normal.'

Parentline QLD & NT asked parents if they were ready to return to normal. Half of parents were, and half weren’t. We also asked young people on Instagram whether they were ready to go back to ‘normal’. 39% of young people told us they weren’t ready.

Here are some direct quotes from young people about why they feared getting back to the way things were.
