dc.description.abstract The Covid-19 pandemic brought havoc to everyone but much more to child-rearing mothers. This qualitative study explored the new roles of mothers in the new normal specifically as being teachers to their children. Six mothers, who had public and private elementary grade children were purposely chosen. Information was gathered through a researcher-made validated interview questionnaire. Collection of information was done online through Facebook messenger and emails. Data analysis produced six themes, namely, complication in becoming mother-teachers, benefits in teaching one’s own children, supervision of children’s studies, impression of children of the modular schooling, considerations on children’s learning and reflection on mothers’ learning. Each theme was discussed thoroughly. To address the situation of these mothers, the Department of Education might consider giving support through home-visit tutorials. Teachers could introduce strategies to mothers on how to manage the studies with their children. Moreover, the Local Government Unit (LGU) may initiate alternative solutions led by the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) to unburden the mothers of their situations.
