With a new wave of COVID spike hitting not only the US — but the world — many of those who returned to in-person learning have found themselves back to remote learning.
Most people have been remote learning since the peak of the virus in March 2020.
Not many can say they’ve lived through a full-blown pandemic, which in itself has caused a lot of anxiety and stress.
Add in having kids, losing your job, having to work remotely, fearing for the safety of your family — amongst other things — and I’m sure that stress and anxiety is skyrocketing.
You’re not alone. Millions of us are feeling that way. And your kids are definitely feeling that way as well.
Mental health experts say during this time of heightened anxiety, finding ways to cope and create stability are key to maintaining a healthy outlook.
There are in fact useful strategies which can help both adults and children cope with the stress or anxiety experienced as a result of the outbreak.
Here’s what you can do...

1. Create a daily routine
This may seem obvious, but structure during uncertain times has proven to help. It doesn’t have to be a strict schedule, but make sure you establish regular times to eat, work, and relax.
Sticking with a routine has been proven to help kids learn discipline, self-control and success building skills.

2. Set aside opportunities for quality time with your kids

Online tutoring lightens the load for parents working from home: Social distancing is still very much in effect, which means most parents are working from home... just as their kids are now learning from home.
Luckily, tutoring organizations, like Jill’s Tutors, have taken their services online! You can rest easy knowing that your child is getting focused one-on-one attention from the safety of your own home.
Plus, unlike these Zoom classrooms where teachers have 30 students at once, your child will have the complete attention of the tutor.
You can have peace of mind knowing that your child is getting the educational attention they deserve, while you get some time to fully focus on your work and other duties as a parent. (You can check out our full blog on remote learning benefits here!)
