Daily Checklist for Parenting in a Pandemic

Checklist for Pandemic Parenting including, Time for school and work, time for play, time alone or quiet time, time for exercise, time for gratitude, time for laughter, loads of deep breaths

We are in week five of social distancing and home quarantine due to the COVID 19 pandemic.  My family has fallen into a regular routine, and each day seems to blend with the next.  I’ve noticed a few things that help to make our days more positive, such as carving out time alone, exercising (even a little bit), and remembering to be grateful and laugh.

Some days I encourage my family to do the things on this checklist. Other days I just try to do them myself. Either way, there’s a positive ripple effect in our home. Wishing you and your family good health, love and moments of joy. Many thanks to the healthcare workers, teachers, grocery clerks, delivery drivers, and other courageous people that have kept our world moving forward during these difficult times.
