Parenting in the time of COVID-19
In order to help parents interact constructively with their children during this time of confinement, the World Health Organization, Unicef, End Violence Against Children, Internet of Good Things, Parenting for Lifelong Health, USAID, Accelerate (Accelerating Achievement for Africa’s Adolescents Hub), and the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have come together, collaborating to produce the six following one-page tips for parents, that cover:
- Planning one-on-one time,
- Staying positive,
- Creating a daily routine,
- Avoiding bad behaviour,
- Managing stress, and
- Talking about COVID-19.
Additionally, the poster on the right, produced by the WHO provides useful recommendations on how to help children cope with the stress caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
