Lock Down Day 12 : Are you surviving the lock down?
I don't know about you and your "lockdown" family, but I have noticed today after 12 days the novality of being couped up is wearing off. In our house we are still trying to keep "what once was" afloat and trying to keep ourselves busy. Lucky for me I have been quite busy with school stuff so I haven't really had time to sit and watch the clock tick by, but today... today I see we need to start checking in with our own tempers( you can't say that you can't relate).
I think its time to do some slight adjustments if we are to survive the next half of this "lockdown". In the past 12 days we have built a 1000 piece puzzle ( well to be honest it ended up being a 999 piece puzzle), I have joined the facebook crowd making a random silly mind numbing video clips, figured out how to use technology a little better and have found a new appreciation for my Home Executive (Domestic worker). Now that school has started again and virtual lessons are going on as if we have been doing it for years. I have a feeling parents might start pulling out their hair as they now embark on supervising their kid's learning. If we had a teenager in this house during this time it would be bitter sweet. The sweet part would be that I would not have to pick up after the dogs, but the Bitter part would be that I am sure we would realise just how much the teachers have to put up with.
.... moving on swiftly .....
Here are some ideas (if you haven't already implemented them) for you to consider as a teacher- parent as we enter the second half of this "lockdown" period.
I am no guru on how to get through the "lockdown", but these ideas are just some points that came to mind while trying very hard to hide from piling emails and whatsapps, the dishwasher and family members who need me to go to the shops. I am confident that you will survive it and be able to tell the story one day. I better stop procrastinating and go and empty that dishwasher now.
