WISE Families

Thank you for posting this WISE Families! Here are a few solid ideas for getting your family through these days. WISE Families

From a WISE friend -

Parents, as if week two wasn't hard enough, you just heard in Virginia it was formally extended to...the end of time.

No surprise here, but hearing it announced made things real. Don't freak out.

1. Get a routine. This isn't spring break. Take baths like you normally do at night. Get up and eat breakfast together.

2. Make a schedule. Start at the same time to keep consistency. Reward yourself for being ready and starting on time (seriously).

3. Create an organized working space. Who wants to work in clutter? Decorate it. Claim it with pictures.

4. Take breaks during your working time. Movement gets oxygen to your brain. Take a walk. Jumping Jacks. Have a snack. (Gonoodle is a great site to visit)

5. Email and ask for help from the school. You are not homeschooling your child. You are facilitating learning. Your school is providing the learning material and you are providing the opportunity and space for your child to learn. If your child is struggling, attempt to help. If you can't figure it out, ask for help. If your child is reluctant to use you for help, ask for help also.

6. Don't panic if you get behind. Ask for extensions. Use the weekends, nights, and carry over into the next week. Ask for modifications on work. Instead of answering all the problems, ask to do half or the first five. Advocate for what you believe your child needs.

7. Technology issues should be brought up to the schools immediately.

8. No one expects you to be the master at the curriculum. Just do your best. Schools are expecting this to be hard. Schools are expecting kids to struggle.

9. And if anyone is really struggling - academically, emotionally, relationally, reach out to us, The Wise Family. We’ll set a weekly therapy session with your kids and teens to work out the kinks. We are REALLY GOOD at that!

Keep your head up, anxiety down. You are amazing parents.
