Theme 7: Cope through planning

Cope through planning

It is a good idea to hold on to routines when the children are at home almost all the time. Planning makes life flow easier.

Plan situations ahead of time with the child or adolescent. Listen to their ideas.

You can also plan the schedule for an entire day together.

You can make the day and planning run more smoothly by using a WHEN–THEN sentence. For example: When you have eaten, then we’ll go outside.

In unusual circumstances it is good to remember not to expect perfection from yourself, your partner or your children. Be kind to yourself and your family! Praise and encourage. Praise your child as soon as you notice that they acting the way you want them to. Also praise them for good attempts.

Do nice things together, play outside, watch films, play games, draw, play, build a fort, bake, sing, read.
