3 TIPS FOR PARENTING IN ISOLATION:
1.) CREATE CLEAR EXPECTATIONS - when ever we are in the unknown (whether its a place or situation) and it causes us stress, worry or anxiety, it's critical to create expectations and boundaries to work with in to help us feel more self-secure.
2.) FEEL THE FEELINGS - encourage both children and adults to feel any of the feelings that may come up during this time that are more intense than usual. By feeling the feelings we create opportunities for self-regulation to take place and develop further.
3.) CORRECT BEHAVIOUR - any behaviour a child demonstrates that is hurtful, harmful, disruptive or destructive must be corrected by their parents. Correcting behaviour is not about punishments or consequences but rather about discussing what parts of their actions were ok and what parts were not ok.
