Tips For Parents For Home Schooling During Pandemic
Many schools across the United States and the world have shifted educating students remotely from home. This new way of educating children required parents to continue to work while still managing their children throughout the day. This is something new for almost everyone and we will try to provide some tips to help with managing home schooling during the pandemic.
Sticking With The Schedule
Having an agenda that both your children and yourself get stick is the first thing you should focus on during home schooling more than anything else. They say that in sports professionals stick to the schedule, while amateurs let life get in the way.
It’s important to remember that small positive habits create a compounding effect that will see great returns over the long run. Have a framework of what things are done during what hours allow your children know the expectations of them.
There’s no need to do everything perfectly, but if you can improve something by just 1 percent per day creates a huge advantage for your children. It is said that the holy grail of change is not s single 1 percent improvement, but a thousand of them.
Quality Over Quantity
One important concept is that of quality. During this pandemic your children will be spending much more time in front of a screen. But it’s important to remember that not all screen time is of the same quality. Time spent in front of the screen learning is much different than that your children spend in front of the screen playing video games. It’s important to limit screen time to the most quality of activities.
Talk With Their Teachers
Not only this new learning environment different for your child, this is also the case with their teachers. It is suggested to speak with their teachers and see what individual learning methods or apps can help provide the best learning experience during these challenging times. Since every kid is different, being able to see which methods their teachers believe can help your children get the most out of their time learning from home.
It might be difficult for your kids to understand why they can’t be with their classmates and friends during this time. Try arranging sometime for your children to have virtual play dates with their friends so they can continue to develop their social skills during the challenging times. Keeping social relationships is very important in the development of your children.
