11 real-life skills you can teach your kids at home during a quarantine
If you find yourself struggling to keep your kids busy with their schools shuttered due to the coronavirus pandemic, writer and mother of two Erinne Magee advises developing an at-home learning routine for your children.
The schedule doesn’t have to be all math and science — instead she recommends focusing on more enjoyable and practical life lessons that your children can’t get in school.
Magee suggests teaching basic first aid, knife safety, and how different home tools work, as well as things like laundry, cooking, and ironing (that will all hopefully prove useful once they make it to college).
Parents around the world are doing their best to navigate some semblance of a school routine at home. Whether equipped with a curriculum or not, there are some skills you can teach your kids that don’t require a textbook or Google classroom. In fact, these life skills can be naturally woven into your already existing day-to-day routine.
