Think Positive

Children are much more likely to do what we ask if we give them positive instructions and lots of praise for what they do right.


Talk about Covid-19

Be willing to talk. Your kids will already have heard things. Silence and secrets do not protect our children. Honesty and openness do. Think about how much they will understand. You know them best.                                                    

One on One Time

School shutdown provides a chance to make better relationships with our children and teenagers.

Managing Behavior

All children misbehave. It is normal when they are tired, hungry, afraid, or learning independence.

Structure Up

COVID-19 has taken away our daily work, home and school routines. This is hard for children, teenagers and for you. Making new routines can help.
