DAY 21 – DAS CIRCUIT BREAKER NEWS – MEMORIES OF STAYING AT HOME #CircuitBreakerSG
When your children look back on this time in their lives how are they going to remember it?
Will they remember the scary facts and stress about the events around the world or will they remember how they spent it with their family and the good times you had together? How we react to this crisis models to our children how they will remember it. Now that we have another five weeks at home together it is time to make some good memories together.
So, how has your week started and how are your children learning?
Remember learning happens everywhere and anywhere and you have a chance to be part of that, whether it is being part of their home-based lessons or helping them complete their worksheets. It can also be teaching them a new craft or baking a cake, learning a new game or exercising together. Now is the opportunity to understand how your child learns and to be more involved in their learning, they will love you for it.
o, now is the time to think about how your child will remember this unique experience.
Maybe these memories will be like…
“I remember when we stayed at home and mum and dad didn’t have to go to work and they were able to play with us. We went for walks around the neighbourhood wearing masks! And Dad taught me how to bake a cake and mum taught me to play chess. We had so much fun together, I remember watching lots of movies and eating popcorn. And it did not matter that we built a fort in our bedroom because we had so much fun together and mum said it was better in our rooms than elsewhere in the house. And even when Mum was on her Zoom conference for work, she let me sit on her lap and I watched all the people she worked with and they waved at me. This was a wonderful time even though it was not for many people, but I felt safe with my parents at home.”
Make memories today!
