Abstract

This paper discusses the mother's struggle for children learning mentoring during the Covid-19 Outbreak in the Rural. We argue the unpreparedness of the education system in dealing with crises puts mothers in unpredictable and submissive situations. Interesting research because earlier studies have not been able to properly reveal their role. The narrative approach is used to access heroic stories, sacrifices, and full of meaning. We collected 47 informant data, but only 16 women were willing to be interviewed in-depth using six open-ended questions. We find five key narratives of mothers' experiences: the knowledge struggle, the technology struggle, the economic struggle, the emotional struggle, and the physical struggle. Unexpectedly before, mothers also suffer fatigue and pain for physical struggle. Gender stereotypes and social norms as village women are discussed. This research emphasizes the importance of education policy intervention in times of crisis, especially in the areas of human resources, economy, and access to information.
