Mrs. Lisa's Notes



The experts all agree that setting and sticking to a regular schedule is key, even when you’re all at home all day. Whenever possible, try to make sure kids still have some structure — for example, getting up, eating and going to bed around the same time every day. Consistency and structure are calming during times of stress. Kids, especially younger ones or those who are anxious, benefit from knowing what’s going to happen and when.

BE CREATIVE ABOUT NEW ACTIVITIES---& EXERCISEFree Fitness and Exercise Clipart - Clip Art Pictures - Graphics -  Illustrations

Incorporate new activities into your routine, like doing a puzzle or having family game time in the evening. Build in activities that help everyone get some exercise. Take a daily family walk or bike ride or do yoga — great ways to let kids burn off energy and make sure everyone is staying active.

Stay in touch virtually

Socializing plays an important role in regulating your mood and helping you stay grounded. And the same is true for your children.

Let kids use social media (within reason) and Skype or FaceTime to stay connected to peers even if they aren’t usually allowed to do so. Communication can help kids feel less alone and mitigate some of the stress that comes from being away from friends.

Check in with Little Kidscartoon-little-kids-happy-clipart-7 | Elkhorn Public Schools Foundation

Check in with younger children periodically and give them the chance to process any worries they may be having. Pick a calm, undistracted time and gently ask how they’re feeling and make sure to respond in a calm, consistent, comforting way.

The school counselor listens, documents and helps students process their problems, providing referrals to other resources as needed.

They are mediators, negotiators and advocates for students, and they also design and implement programs to help everyone thrive in the school setting while preparing them for the next stages in their lives.
