Fear. Anxiety. Uncertainty. If you are not currently experiencing these feelings, there is a good chance you know someone who is. And maybe even your kids.
At the time of writing this, here in our state, and many others, all schools have been closed and kids are home with the possibility of online learning. Churches are closed and trying to find ways to meet ‘virtually’. Companies are closing there doors and people are working from home, being laid off, or worse- losing their jobs.
Globally we are in uncharted territory. We don’t know what to do, and we don’t have answers for many of our questions or the questions our kids are asking.
While it may be scary, do your best to be intentional about the extra time you have with your kids. While your tendency may be to hand your kids a tv remote or an iPad, there is so much more you could be doing.
Yes, a quarantine period will be difficult. An unexpected, prolonged school cancellation is at the very least inconvenient, but you can turn something potentially scary and inconvenient into something valuable and memorable.
Be intentional with your extra time. Sure, go ahead and have some extra TV time. But watch together. Then talk about what you just watched.
Play some games together. Go for a daily walk together. Do some arts and crafts- draw some pictures. Keep a journal together to help you remember when your kids get older.
You have the power to make something good come out of a situation that is not good. You have the power to make your family stronger.
