We are all adjusting to our new world of social distancing and hoping that we can flatten the curve enough that our healthcare infrastructure is not overwhelmed. In real terms this likely means that many of us are home with our kids unexpectedly. And we don't really know what tomorrow will bring so it is hard to plan things. This could be very stressful for our children. I am certain that someone will come up with some excellent guidance that is specific to the pandemic, but in the mean time, the CDC has the following advice for parents for Helping Kids Cope With Emergencies.
Remember to find ways to keep in contact with people while you are practicing social distancing, so that you don't experience social isolation. Schedule phone visits (my kids would say "like the olden days"), catch up with friends on Skype or FaceTime, load up on great books, games, toys, audiobooks and movies at the library, and have everyone in your home come up with a pandemic project - sew that quilt, learn to knit, take up beading or woodwork, something that gets you and them off the internet and off the computer and keeps you sane.
