  • From there you gather your routine or a schedule that works best for you and your family 
  • Provide breaks in the day to continue to build their mental stamina (they aren’t robots, right? 

2. Setting Boundaries 

  • Designate work space for you and your child (no pajamas after 9am) and absolutely no bedroom 
  • Give your child clear and explicit expectations for the day 
  • Offer your child choices on things they can do while you’re on a call to cut down on distractions and disruption.

3. Go With The Flow and Give Yourself Grace

  • You are NOT a teacher so don’t hold yourself to that standard.
  • Use your child’s teacher as a resource, they will always be more than willing to help 
  • When you start to get frustrated, step away, regain yourself and return with a fresh mindset.
