为了缓解这种过渡，我们在下面列出了一些提示，其中包括关于照顾自己的建议。 在此期间 因为你以最佳方式支持你孩子的学习。
You are not going through this alone. Reaching out to share ideas, concerns and frustrations can help you manage your own feelings and find new ways to support your child. Remember your child’s teachers, administrators and counselors are here for your questions or concerns as one large support network.
A consistent routine creates a sense of order and reassurance in the face of uncertain circumstances. Try building your new routine around the hours put forward for Virtual School. Ensure your routine is achievable and that “less is more”. Allow room for flexibility and relaxation time for both you and your child.
This is a great time to bond and collaborate as a family. Older siblings can support younger siblings and parents can share responsibilities around their work schedules. For those fortunate enough to have family members nearby: assign them tasks as well! Learning at home is a great way of supporting your child’s learning in your home language. Encourage conversations about your child’s learning in both English and your home language to boost development of concepts.
As you navigate change, try to develop an awareness of your limits and those of your child. Take a few minutes each day to connect with yourself; ask yourself how you are feeling and whether you need support. Encourage your child to do the same. Open and honest communication with your child will help preempt any challenges in adapting to change.
Many will experience temporary frustration and confusion as they manage the substantial amount of new information and unfamiliar routine associated with home learning. Forgive yourself for the inevitable mistakes that will be made along the way. Take each task as it comes and remember support is just a call away.
