COVID-19 has taken away our normal daily routine of home, work and school or college.

This is hard for all the family and making new routines can help.

How to make a routine or structure your day:

  • Help children or teenagers plan the routine for the day
  • Children will follow a schedule better if they help to make it
  • Don’t forget exercise this can help alleviate stress and will hopefully tire out those children who have lots of energy
  • At the end of the day praise your child for what they did well during the day
  • Remember to praise yourself too
