When you give your child one-on-one time, he feels protected and comfortable. It's also easier to handle your child if both parents contribute equally. It is highly recommended to complete work from home without interruption. Your bond will be more prominent when you give your child one-on-one time.

  • It’s the best time to keep them away from junk food, and build their immunity.

By the time the kids go out after the controlled pandemic situation, they will be used to the new normal.

6. Keep Your Child Safe from The Online World

The best parenting is when you can protect your child from the online and offline world. We often leave our children with phones, enjoying rhymes, and videos online. There are many preschools and preschool franchises which give a fixed screen time for the toddlers. Well, there is no harm in allowing your child to spend some fun time online, but you need to keep an eye.

Online, children may encounter several threats, including:

  • Harmful content like violence, bullying, suicidal, and more

  • Use of inappropriate and abusive language

  • Cartoons or animated videos spreading wrong messages, etc

Pro Tip:You can enable parental controls while handing over the smart devices to your children.

7. Stay off From Negative News

Watching the news of what’s happening around due to the pandemic, can keep you stressed and in panic. So, watch the news only for awareness, the extended grasping of disturbing news can upset the cheerful atmosphere of your home. The best way to Manage Yourself as Parents During Pandemic, is to choose your screen-time and content wisely. It is better to watch some entertaining live shows, comedy shows, that can add some laughter time for you and your family.

Pro Tip:Enjoying funny cartoon shows with your children is also a good idea, that can keep the entire family entertained.

8. Avoid Aggression, Arguments, and Bad Behaviour

It is normal to have arguments between partners while at home. However, you should keep in mind that apart from being husband and wife, you are parents too. So, even if you have any differences, make sure you act normal in front of your child. You can go into another room or talk after your child is asleep. If your child observes you, he would be nervous, might start crying or be scared of you. Every child is unique, and they might react differently.

Pro Tip:Children catch bad manners, and they can get restless. Even if your child witnesses you people fighting accidentally, immediately change the topic. Involve with your child in some fun intellectual games or other activities to divert their mind.

9. Meditate and Exercise

Being at home, managing your career, family, and child with tranquillity is challenging no matter how well you are at managing. Make meditation and exercise a part of your daily practice if you want to Manage Your Family During Pandemic and stay calm.

Pro Tip:It's normal to get upset, frustrated, or sad during a pandemic away from social life. If you feel uneasy, breathe, relax, and give some time to yourself.

10. Share the Load

Managing yourself as a mother or father during a pandemic, that too if it’s your first child, can be backbreaking. Here, the best solution is to maintain harmony in the family. Share the load with your partner, or other family members (in case of a joint family). When you try to manage everything yourself, you might impact your work or family life. Whenever or wherever you get stuck, discuss with your family, and you would definitely find a solution.

Pandemic is a tough time. Do not over-expect from yourself. If you want the best parenting for your child, do not restrict their learning during the growth years to yourself. It is better to enrol them in online preschool classes for their social-emotional development. They will see new faces, indulge in interactive activities, and be engaged for a few hours.

So, cheer up, this is just a time that too shall pass.
