More than 10 states in our country have announced the reopening of schools. School WhatsApp groups are brimming with texts. Just what is going on in today's parent's minds?
While all of us are arguing about if schools should open their doors or shouldn't, here's an interesting and important thing educator Swati Popat Vats has pointed out during a webinar Kidsstoppress hosted on Schools Reopening: To Do Or Not To Do?
We must teach our children social distancing, how to breathe in a mask for so many hours, hygiene protocols before we send them out! We shouldn't assume that COVID is over. We need to protect our children and give them the tools they need!
We try to break it down for you.
- From learning loss to the inability to sit in a place and focus.
- From screen time woes to not feeling connected to the teacher.
- From feeling anxious to not being able to follow instructions
Ensuring that they are vaccinated & that their cycle of protection is complete is extremely important. So if you are concerned about how you can complete their cycle of protection, you can check details about vaccinations that your child needs to stay healthy & safe right here.
This is what Swati Popat says and it makes so much sense.
