5 Decluttering Tips for Your Mental Health!
If you are having trouble keeping your child motivated while distance learning, you are not alone, and The Doctors are here to help!
We welcome pediatrician and parenting expert Dr. Jen Trachtenberg who shares her top tips for keeping your little one engaged and interested while they learn remotely. Her learning tips include:
- Break up the learning with physical activity like a dance break, situps, running in place, or maybe even doing a chore
- Do not have your child eat lunch or snack where they remote learn, and she says have a second location to eat or go outside when taking a food break
- Create a daily routine for your child, as kids thrive on a schedule, which includes getting up, taking care of their hygiene, and getting dressed each day
- Do not allow kids to have access to their phones or devices while learning
- Make sure to schedule COVID-safe playdates or interactions with your child's friends or classmates if possible
She also stresses that being honest with your child about the fears, stress, and anxiety related to the pandemic is important. Dr. Jen says parents need to make sure they listen when kids express themselves because often the thing a child is most concerned with will not be what the parent is thinking.
