Ideas for Parenting 24/7 at Home
1. Create Routines
The above image is from a local young mom who grew up in Northampton. She worked at a daycare and had a model for how to set this up with her 2 year old at home. In her words: "I believe routines and schedules are so important not only for children but for parents too. This keeps her learning and engaged and keeps me organized and sane. Specially in times like this is so important to provide our children with environments they can be safe, and learn In. Will our days look exactly like this? Of course not but it’s a good resource for me to look at and follow!"
