2020 has been a challenging year for sure. Every day looks the same. The kids are tired and frustrated. And so are the parents. In addition to being mothers, we have to be super-teachers and help fight school failure. You know what they say: mothers make it happen. Schools are closed. But learning cannot stop. So a new mission is unlocked: turn your home into a classroom! To achieve that mission, you’ll need some practical tips.
We decided to ask Clare Seruwagi (Checheza’s Country coordinator in Uganda) how she helps her kids learn at home during the lockdown. Clare takes care of her own three daughters (aged 5, 9, and 11) and a 12-year-old niece. She shared her tips to manage the situation and children’s learning. Here’s how they manage the lockdown.
Finally, don’t forget to cut yourself some slack! After all, we are all humans and these times are indeed hard. So don’t forget to be kind to yourself and your kids. Remember that you can count on Checheza app to make your kids keep learning, by playing all the fun games in the app! At Checheza, we believe in helping kids to develop through fun, play, and creativity. We hope these tips will be useful to you. In the meantime keep learning and stay strong!
