Priorities for parents who are 'Corona Schooling'

The three main priorities for parents and their children right now - IN THIS ORDER:

1. Ensure the physical, mental and psychological health of yourself and your family. 2. Help your children to love learning. 3. Help your children to learn.


Most (good) teachers are brilliant at doing all three of these things for your children when they're in the classroom. Most teachers are not so good at helping you to do this via a virtual classroom - they're scrambling as much as the rest of us right now.


So, don't fall into the trap of increasing the stress and anxiety for yourself or your children, and killing any love of learning they might have. We are going to be doing disrupted schooling for a few months, maybe even the rest of this year and into next. So, you have to make a way to make it work for you.
