#5 Keep to a daily routine

Does it matter if your children are doing less school work? If their bedrooms are messier than usual? It’s annoying, but give yourself permission to let things go a bit. On the flip side, routines are extremely helpful for everyone. A day without structure is a day which is more likely to drift into conflict, and as a parent you need to keep your children physically and mentally healthy. This is more important than ever as the risks to both are high right now.

Agree and keep to a daily routine so that everyone knows what’s happening next. It’s predictable, and predictable = safe and secure.
