learning how to deal with them, and parents can model it, because we have our own anxiety about going back to school or our own work routine. talking about that anxiety and how that feels about and how you cope as a parent and how your kids can cope is really good practice for them going back to school. >> reporter: i'm pamela osborne, nbc 10 news. the housing market may be hot right now, but home builders can't find enough workers to get the job done. the national association of home builders estimates there are about 200,000 unfilled construction jobs at all levels of experience. that's up 81% from two years ago. without enough workers, construction is trailing demand for homes. also, with labor costs rising, builders resorting to making more expensive homes, abandoning the starter market, causing a tight supply of entry-level homes. well, facebook is testing a new feature that shows you status updates you might otherwise miss. reports say there's a box marked "what friends are talking
