How to care for your children at home?
Parents can usually help their children in coping up with stress and anxiety that mostly gets triggered during lockdown. Motherhood is different for each and every mom out there. This road has a lot of challenges that includes handling the mental pressure, thoughts and all the habits of your child. If your 3-4 years old kid tends to get irritated on small things, then what should you do?
Mom influencer Riddhi says, that these children get irritated only when there is nothing to do for them or when things are not working according to their wish. In such situations, the parent should try and know the reason behind it. If something is bothering them or if it is something that they want. And, try to give them small day to day tasks such as keeping utensils on their own and going to the market with you. You can also make your child engage in simple indoor activities like dancing and painting. This will keep them busy and diverted. They also get irritated when they are not getting any attention.
Tips for moms in the current situation of lockdown
- Moms should take care of themselves and take proper rest instead of being on the clock for the whole day round
- Some children got their first introduction of school through video cams and they never visited school, so it is important to teach them good habits and make them understand the importance of education
- Make a time table for yourself and plan things in a way that makes your child a part of your daily routine
- Do not think negative and talk all positive with your child. For example, avoid talking about what happened, Covid lockdown, when it will end, etc
