Yesterday, after weeks of waffling, England, Scotland, and Wales announced schools are closing due to #Coronavirus. Indefinitely. That might be a daunting prospect for some parents, but it may the greatest opportunity our families and children ever have. So, what has almost a decade as a #homeed mom taught me? What advice would I give others?
As a health educator, the most important thing is to give people accurate, reliable, and concise information to empower them to manage their health. Or so I was taught. If you are confused by the information coming from the government or lack of it, I hope this list of my fav sources will help.
The government says one thing one minute and another the next. Without clear and concise guidelines from our leaders, how do you make the ‘right’ decision for you and your family in terms of #socialdistancing and #selfisolation?
As our @HomeCrazzyHome prepares for up to 4 months of #selfisolating to protect the health of my high-risk partner, it is just as important that we begin to #prep for the challenges of maintaining positive #mentalhealth as well as physical.
North Ireland has announced that schools may be shut for weeks or months due to the #coronavirus. Some parents may be panicking. After all, summer holidays are ‘bad’ enough. No worries, some thoughts from a #homeed #Mom about how to keep everyone happy during a time of #socialdistancing and #selfisolation.
Humans are social animals. We all need people. Even introverts like me. So, why, who, and how do you stay in contact with during these days when #socialdistancing and #selfisolation are trending?
