How we meet the challenges that are presented to us every day may shape how resilient our children will be as adults (and our future parents, legislators and caretakers).
Everything about quarantine was designed to keep us from using our senses (masks, gloves, distancing, disinfectant). Use the summer to get back in touch and smell and taste.
When I was about nine years old, I contracted Scarlet Fever, which I then passed on to my father and at least one of my siblings. This caused the family to be quarantined in our house for almost three weeks. After all these years, I remember that my father can’t dance, my mother isn’t a cook but that together they could make quarantine into magic.
You can help your child learn how to manage time, develop some self-awareness about their learning/working style and negotiate favorable outcomes.
Learning how to wait and delay satisfaction is a trait that has been associated with later successes.
we seem to have forgotten that we need to teach our children the basic daily living skills (usually referred to as ADL skills)
