He believes that his parents will know when the right time is to make the move to living full-time on the first floor of their home, unlike his sister. Hunter does not want to pressure his parents into doing something they are not quite ready for. Their parents are still stubborn that they do not need to move to the downstairs bedroom quite yet.

During this time, Whitney was still living in Charlotte, more than an hour away from her parents. She didn’t want to travel and potentially expose herself or her parents to the virus.
