Owing to the Covid-19 circumstance, these days I’ve been keeping myself rather busy with work-from-home (WFH) arrangements and home-based learning (HBL) for the kids. Talk about multi-tasking at it’s finest! Not to mention, the ultimate mindblowing experience for parents! 🤯
But in all honesty, it wasn’t all that bad… At least I’m still sane. Heheh…
Well, for that to be even possible, I figured I had to first get INTENTIONAL about stuff that fuss – homework struggles, tantrums, whining, shouting and the likes. Yikes!
Timetables and house rules are a great way to start with getting intentional. And what I found effective in making the kids really commit was getting them to pen their own schedules and affirmations because they own them!
Of course it’s not without some “parental guidance”, lest something too wacky 🤪 gets jotted down that later leads to more turmoil than peace! It’s really very much about setting goals and healthy routines.
After that, it’s just reminding them of what they wrote on ‘that piece of paper’ whenever they act up or sidetrack. ❤
In the same vein, if you’re finding it a tad breathless (no pun intended) having to manage the kids at home 24/7 (literally), then you might find running through the course of a program and falling upon some STRUCTURE helps cut through the clutter and frames things up so you learn to focus on what really works and what truly matters.
