The new school year and virtual learning is something that both students and parents had very little time to prepare for. After all, this is not a situation any of us experienced before, and the learning process is equally challenging for everyone involved. Parents are finding out that managing your child’s schoolwork is almost a job in itself. This is especially true for younger kids who need a lot of help navigating the world of virtual learning. To make the situation better, try to have a space in your home designating for virtual school. Create goals and discuss them with your children. Set boundaries and expectations, and then establish a routine that will enable your child to meet those expectations in a less stressful way.
- For best practice virtual learning, you will want to set up a workstation for your child and give them space.
- You don’t want to interrupt them while they are doing important studies or talking with classmates.
- Respect each other’s schedules as a family and plan ahead of time to prioritize everyone’s goals.
“Like many families, mine is adapting to doing e-learning offered through our school. Since I am also working from home, it poses some obstacles, but we are learning to overcome these challenges as time goes by.”
