The education system is disrupted. Schools have been closed off since March due to the COVID-19 outbreak and many parents are equally glad to have their children home while also feeling somewhat worried about their education. While it is normal to feel that you, as parents are helpless right now, you should still know that there are many things that you can do from home to ensure that your children keep learning even if they are not really in school.
School education from home
one of the best ways in which you can make sure that your child does not miss out too much, would be to try and do their schoolwork with them from home. You can get the books delivered through many of the delivery services now available and, if you feel a little lost call their class teacher to find out how you can go about this. They will be more than happy to help. In fact this would be a great opportunity to try and polish up on the subjects that your child seems to find difficult.
Give them lessons in other activities
While school lessons are important, this is also a fantastic opportunity for you to educate your child on other activities like cooking, cleaning and gardening. This would not only broaden their minds, but would also teach them a good amount of responsibility and will also give them enough variety.
Play with them so they don’t miss sports
Your child might be missing out on sports. To avoid them feeling like they cannot have fun, play with them. Since everybody is home, this would be a great time for all of you to play together and enjoy some quality bonding time as well.
Watch educational programs
There are many educational programs that are being telecast right now. Allow your child to watch these and encourage them to learn from these. This is a good and innovative way for your child to learn as well.
