School closures, working remotely, physical distancing are some of the precautions we are taking to reduce the risk of COVID-19.

Education must not suffer due to the pandemic. Children must not stress themselves over to the situation; rather focus on the studies and to excel in academics.

Here are the tips which will help the children to keep learning:

Plan a routine together – Remember that it is the most crucial time for you as a parent. Plan a routine together whether of studying or playing. Give your active participation in both of them.

Have open conversations – Don’t forget to be friends with your children. Listen to their feelings and problems, try to solve them. Always assure them that you are with them no matter what. This gives your children inner strength and confidence to fight over stress and anxiety.

Protect children online – These days online classes are given to the students. Internet has become the new medium of studying but excess use of internet might be dangerous for children. Do not forget to keep an eye on them.
