Every parent right now is having to take on all the tasks associated with their child’s care and schoolwork while still video conferencing and talking on the phone for their job. Here are some tips for how to keep your child’s academics up while still performing your job. You should create a clear schedule so you all feel settled, have a separate schedule for your child’s schoolwork, and always remember to talk with your kids about how they are feeling.
- Create a Schedule for Your Family and Stick to It. Try to stick to this schedule daily so your children know what to expect.
- Create an end point for schoolwork so that there is time for your child to decompress and connect with their friends via video chats.
- Ask your children about their worries. Listen but don’t feel the need to fix or make it better.
“Our kids can’t work on their schoolwork for hours on end. There has to be a beginning and end point. Find out from your children when their teachers want them to log in to a video chat, etc.”
