From the Eagle’s Nest
With SUIMA being closed during this time due to COVID-19, here are recommendations about how to help your child cope with so much time isolated at home.
Be honest and factual. Children deserve clear, accurate information at their level. Reassure them, but you also don’t want to hide anything. Be calm. Avoid talking to your child in a spirit of anxiety. Answer questions honestly.
Teach preventive measures. Use the Montessori method of modeling and then encourage your child to practice these things:
In a world where children often feel over-scheduled and overwhelmed, try to frame this time as a break from the stresses and pressures children face. Offering children opportunities to go outside or experience unstructured play are valuable opportunities.
“Play,” Montessori argues, “is the work of the child.”
