Self-Care Tips

Don't worry if you think you aren't teaching your child the same way as your child's teacher. No one is expecting you to have the "perfect" lesson, day, or even week. Allow yourself to have flexibility, focus, and fun with your child.

Flexibility - Every day might look different and that's okay! Find a schedule that works for your family.

Focus - Stay focused on your strengths and what your child has already learned.

Fun - Enjoy teaching them and learning alongside them.

Take Some Time for You

It is important to take time for yourself to stay healthy and ready to help your family. Go for walks with your family and talk about your day. Ask your child to describe what they are seeing on your journey. The walk will help you stay physically fit and the time spent with your family will help you feel more connected to them.
