Sudden Home Schooling Tips For Parents

DB+

If you are reading this during the Coronavirus Pandemic of 2020, then you are likely full of anxious feelings right about now. At the very least, you’re probably worrying that your children or other family members may have been exposed to a potentially deadly virus. Maybe you’ve caught what you think is a little cold or a stomach bug… but you’re not quite sure, and that’s creating some uncomfortable feelings.

Even if you’re not fully convinced that Coronavirus is an extremely serious concern, at the very least you’re trapped in your home for most of the day, all day, every day. And if you have kids, then you’re been tasked with the seemingly impossible. Out of nowhere, you’re expected to become a stand-in school teacher.

Of course, not only is the sudden responsibility of having to teach your children from home bearing down upon you, but you also likely have been sent home from your actual job indefinitely. You may have been laid off, or perhaps your pay was suspended. Another possibility is that you own your own business, either at a physical location, or in the form of an ecommerce or service based website. This puts some pretty serious pressure on to suddenly morph into a “do and be everything” type of miracle working human.

Being home with your restless children, waiting for the next terrifying news update, wondering how you’ll manage to keep your pantry stocked with fresh food and toilet paper without exposing your family to deadly germs, and trying to keep your house as clean as possible to avoid viral contamination, have likely taken their toll on your mental health.

The bad news is that the virtual classroom that has spontaneously taken shape under the direction of your child or children’s teacher, who is also scared and fumbling her way around unfamiliar ground, appears to be the way of life for the majority of us for the next who-knows-how-long.

Even worse, there are reports that as Coronavirus remains a growing threat to our health, we may be forced to make our role as home schooling parents the norm through the end of the 2019-2020 school year.
