Good Digital Parenting While Staying At Home

Good Digital Parenting While Staying At Home

The past several weeks have turned the world on its head. Our households, communities, nation, and world are experiencing rapid change in a way we’ve never seen before. We’ve found ourselves  amidst a global pandemic and a national emergency, struggling to keep up with fear, uncertainty, and countless impacts to our daily lives.

Many schools and businesses are now closed, and parents have instantly become responsible for homeschooling kids while adapting to working remotely themselves, or  desperately seeking childcare. Everyone is doing their best to keep up with almost hourly developments at the national, regional and local levels while still taking care of their families.

One thing we know for certain is that our kids are looking to us to know how to make sense of it all. With so many of them at home and spending more time on devices for news, schoolwork or distraction, now is a vital time to start creating structure and new routines for the weeks, or even months, ahead.
