Parenting during a pandemic
Hopefully the video gave you a little laugh and comfort that you are not alone in this!
Playing multiple roles during this time can sometimes be a struggle. All of a sudden you are working from home while homeschooling and maybe even taking turns with your partner spending time with the kids! Change is difficult and experiencing a whirlwind of emotions is normal. To cope with this temporary new way of life, create a new routine and structure for the kids. This helps the kids feel safe and in control. This is key to their healthy growth and development. Some resources to create a routine are:
Live Virtual Kid's Yoga & Story time every Thursday at 10:30am with Yoga Phamily
Have the kids cook with you. Assembling personal pizzas, decorating cupcakes, or cookies are usually a hit!
Attend live story time every Tuesday & Thursday at 2pm and Saturday at 10am hosted by San Francisco Public Library via Instagram Live
Go on a virtual museum field trip: British Museum, London, Guggeinheim Museum, New York, National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C., Musée d’Orsay, Paris, National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Seoul, Pergamon Museum, Berlin, The J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles, Uffizi Gallery, Florence, MASP, São Paulo, National Museum of Anthropology, Mexico City, The Lourve, Paris
Tune into Sesame Street as they educate the little ones about the Coronavirus
We hope this was helpful to your family and if there is anything Yoga Phamily can do to help during this time, please reach out to us even if it is just for a listening ear.
