Social Distancing- What it Means to Our Family and Tips!
Over the past week, social distancing has become a topic of conversation. So many people aren't seeing the importance of practicing social distancing. I made a video to explain what it means to OUR family when society practices social distancing, and to give a few tips to make your time at home with kids go a little more smoothly. My son has a rare disease and his health is vulnerable even with just the common cold, so we practice social distancing on a regular basis. My four main tips are- 1. Maintain a regular schedule and routine. Life happens, so it doesn't have to be perfect, but it does help to abide by some sort of routine. If you have something you do every day that helps you feel more like yourself, keep doing it. 2. Set reasonable (age-appropriate) goals for each day. Don't overload the kids with work. 3. Keep up with cleaning the house as you go and get the kids to help- with everyone home things can get dirty fast! 4. Allow for frequent breaks, especially with elementary-aged kids- find something fun that they can look forward to during those breaks as an incentive.
