During these uncertain times, I have a few things to hopefully help calm your much frayed nerves.
Homeschooling is not for everyone and that is ok. Your time, energy and presence are what your kid(s) needs the most.
Learning should not be a battle. If it is stop, don’t do it.
Unless you are in self isolation, remember you can get your kids outside (respecting social distancing).
There is so much LIFE learning that can take place over these coming weeks.
Children do thrive on routines and a predictable rhythm to their days. Discuss this with them, hear their voice come up with this routine together.
Do NOT, I repeat do NOT feel guilty about allowing your children screen time. It is all about balance here.
We are all entering into uncharted waters, it is scary, it is confusing, it is unknown but we can do it.
Wash those hands, clean frequently touched surfaces and listen to what the Government and professionals are asking us to do.
Lots more support coming your way.
We are in this together,
