Here we have a few tips and tricks you can adopt when it comes to protecting your child from Coronavirus.

CONTINUE YOUR DAILY ROUTINE

Children are prone to get scared if they see their parents panicking. Try and go by the usual routine that you follow and make sure to not make any drastic change that could scare the little soul. No need to scare them off by switching the news on all day or even discussing the effects of it on the phone. Make them understand the condition in a more natural way than bombarding them with complicated stuff.

MAKE INDOORS FUN

While most schools are shut during this pandemic, make sure to make indoor activities fun for your kid. Come up with new and innovative ways to entertain them so they do not get bored. You also need to understand that this self-quarantine might go for long, so be prepared and schedule your activities accordingly. Make sure to enjoy all the indoor activities without a gathering of friends.

SLOWLY TEACH GOOD HYGIENE

While teaching good habits is always on a parent’s list, but, because of the Coronavirus scare, it is important to tick this task off faster than ever. Slowly, teach and practice good hygiene like washing the hands, using sanitizers and not touching the face. Setting timers and inculcating the habit every few hours can be beneficial. 

IMPROVE IMMUNE SYSTEM

Now, this is not a day’s task. But, you can always promote the consumption of good food when it comes to your kids. Now, the thing to learn here is to understand the fact that they learn what they see and if you are the one avoid the greens, your child will learn that too. Also, when it comes to improving their immunity, a bit of exercise is also essential. While the kid cannot go outdoors, try fun exercise-related activities at home.

KEEP YOUR HOME CLEAN

Door knobs, newspaper, office laptops and playing balls can all be affected by germs. Make a conscious effort to keep the kid’s surrounding clean. If you have a nanny or house help, ensure that they are also taking good care of their hygiene. 

Lastly, if any member of the house is sick or feeling low, STAY AWAY from your child until fully recovered.
