These truly are unprecedented times that we’re in.
Kids are home from school when they should be learning and having fun with their friends.
Parents are suddenly working from home to keep up with their workload while still trying to entertain the kids and keep them learning in some way.
Time outside has been limited due to all the rain and storms, and the kids may not understand why they can’t get all their friends together to since school is out.
So, I’ve compiled a list of resources to use during these strange times to help keep a normal schedule the best we can.

Consider time-blocking your day between work and kids.
When you go to the grocery store, only buy what you need.
Spend time cleaning and sanitizing regularly.
