Life goes on, even in a pandemic. In a few months’ time, this could also mean that it’s back to school for your kids. No doubt, the prospect is really a cause for concern, especially with no permanent solution currently in sight. For this reason, you need to take it upon yourself to ensure your kids’ continued protection from the coronavirus at all times.
Here are some steps you can take right now.
Protection in School
As long as the coronavirus remains a threat, it will take a concerted effort between educators and parents to keep students protected from infection as they go back to school.
With still so many questions about reopening schools in the pandemic, it can be difficult to know what the best course of action is at this time.
At the very least, it’s important to know the CDC guideline on this matter and find out what measures your kids’ schools are taking to adhere to them.
This early, it’s important to already teach social distancing and other safety measures like proper handwashing to get your kids ready for school.
Safe at Home
While you can only do so much to protect your kids from COVID-19 while they’re in school, you do have full control over how safe and virus-free your home is.
With an unseen enemy to consider, keeping your house clean and virus-free goes beyond just cleaning up clutter. Mom’s Turn Journal has some excellent tips for you.
You’ll want to have the right cleaning implements on hand to keep your home sanitized, so consider these DIY home cleaning products that are both safe and effective.
It’s also smart to get your home deep cleaned regularly, so you can be sure that no viruses are lurking in those nooks and crannies.
Health Above All
Keeping your kids healthy and their immune systems strong remain the best way to keep them safe from the coronavirus and other diseases.
Now more than ever, it’s crucial for your family to maintain a healthy diet comprised of immune-boosting foods.
You also need to help them overcome sleep disruption related to stress as sleep will do wonders in keeping your kids’ immune system in shape.
Make sure to keep a healthy home with green cleaning practices to also minimize your kids’ exposure to harmful chemicals and other allergens.
Indeed, while we’re all in this together, the reality is, you still need to take matters into your own hands to keep your kids safe from infection. Ultimately, the precautions you take will save lives, maybe even your family’s, so let that be reason enough to take them.
