Schools Closed and Kids are at Home
With the recent COVID-19 precautions, many of our children are home from school. This can cause some anxiety for children and parents alike. We will share with you some ideas to help in this uncertain time.
Your Parenting Plan
No matter your marital status, if you have children you need a parenting plan to handle emergencies and unexpected situations such as this. For separated and divorced parents this may be an especially trying time to balance work and finances, caring for your child(ren), the health and safety for you and your child(ren) as well as honoring specific child custody agreements and parenting plans. With regards to the legal and family law issues that may arise, we strongly advise you to speak with our attorneys to help guide you in this time and assist in matters if legal advise and action is necessary.
Keeping Your Child(ren) Busy While at Home
We will share with you some ideas on how to occupy your child(ren)’s time, focus and energy while they are now “stuck at home”.
The ever Infamous School Work
- With kids out of school, during what would normally be considered a normal school schedule, many school districts and teachers are providing “at home learning” packets or study guides to assist in keeping the students up-to-date and help re-enforce what they have already learned. Some schools and teachers are even working “virtually” with classes as well as providing online materials and resources.
- Your child(ren) could assist in cleaning and organizing around the house. This could be as simple as your child(ren) going through their room and cleaning, organizing and throwing away old and unimportant items. Creating a “Spring Cleaning Bingo Card” can help turn it in to a fun game.
In-Home Scavenger Hunts
- This is good activity for young and old children alike. Whether the items are hidden or commonly found around the house, this can be a fun activity together or independently.
- If possible, go outside. Being cooped up at home can create a bit of anxiety for both adults and children. Some call this “Cabin Fever”. Be sure to schedule some “recess time” to get outside.
