Maintaining a daily routine will help everyone manage some of the anxiety caused by this big change.
- Write out a schedule and stick it to the wall so the kids can refer to it throughout the day. If your school is closed for a month or more, also build in 'school' time.
- Even toddlers will benefit from a routine, though you'll need to guide their activities more.
- Resist the temptation to have a screen time free-for-all.
