One of the biggest tips for remote learning, or homeschooling is to try to minimize distractions as much as possible. There are a lot of distractions at home, and the schedule is a lot more relaxed at home than it is at school. Kids still need plenty of sleep and they still that balance and that structure. If you are a parent who isn’t skilled at many topics, then it is likely that you will have to learn those topics in order to convey them to your child.
- Make sure you find time to socialize. People often talk about socialization for children but forget that the parent needs to find time to socialize without their children too.
- Homeschoolers do not have to follow the National Curriculum so if any particular topic grabs the child’s attention, they can use the internet to find related resources.
- If you’re temporarily homeschooling, then tools like Google Classroom can help you interact with your class and teacher from school.
