For children, does learning even matter right now? Yes, it does.

Routines are helpful to kids during uncertain times. And usually, their routine is to go to school and learn, so maintaining a sense of normalcy will help kids feel safer too.

Parents, you should also go easy on yourselves.

Don’t put even more pressure on your shoulders right now. Be sure your kids are fed and taken care of emotionally.

Yes, doing school work is important, but not as vital is taking care of your children’s safety and health needs.
