“That means doing so safely with masks outside socially distanced, but making sure that there is a way that kids can experience the full range of emotions and all of the things that you would want little kids to do when they are hanging out with others their age, not just Zoom.”Parents – you’re probably crafting unique ways to ensure your child is safe while also balancing their social needs.
Dr. Prinstein suggests finding families who are practicing similar safety measures. Set up a play date or time outside with those families.
It’s also suggested that parents rotate the responsibility. If you are not able to work from home, see if you can rotate with a family similar to that mentioned above so you can rotate responsibility.
If there are parents with children in your neighborhood attending the same virtual academy, this could be a good way to share in the educational load.
