Coronavirus affects the whole world. It’s really important to understand that it’s not a joke and it doesn’t choose who will be infected. It doesn’t matter if you are poor or rich, famous or infamous, celebrity or a regular person. Everyone can catch it. Even our kids that’s why they decided to close the schools. I know it can be devastating information for lots of parents. I understand that nobody is safe and sitting at home does not guarantee that kids will not get the virus. But I prefer to minimalise the risk. Especially that little ones don’t need to have any symptoms but they can be carers and give it to their grandparents.
So, if you have a possibility to keep kids at home please do it. For the good of all. I know it can be hard and tricky because kids don’t like to be trapped at home. That’s why there are so many companies that try to help parents keep children busy during that hard time. Why not try all those free educational resources? Also, you can try out physical indoor activities to burn off their energy.
I will definitely spend hours and hours playing with my son but I also want to teach him something before he will return to his nursery. So, I’m grateful I can use all those educational resources for free. I want to share all of them which I found on the Internet, in my FB groups and those which I got from my friends. I hope you will do the same in the comments. More we have them than better for us and our kids.
