5 Great Tips To Help Your Kids Ace Remote Learning

Posted: November 04, 2020

As the new school year begins, parents everywhere are facing new challenges and tougher choices than ever before. While every situation is different, and many parents are comfortable sending their children back to school, others are opting to take advantage of distance-learning or hybrid-learning opportunities, at least temporarily, so they can be sure they have chosen the safest possible learning environment. But this decision brings with it a whole new set of uncertainties for parents and students alike. How can parents keep their students focused and engaged without becoming full-time teachers or supervisors? If you’ve considered going in this direction, have no fear. We’ve gathered some tips from top experts to help make your distance-learning journey a little easier, remove some of the stress, and create a great learning experience for your child. 

Establish a Routine

Establishing and sticking to a schedule and a routine will enable great habits which in turn will lead to better results.

That’s why more kids than ever are slipping into sedentary lifestyles, and it’s wreaking havoc on their health. And now, with concerns about COVID-19 seemingly ever-present, fitness and general health are more important than ever.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO) (1), we are in the midst of an irrefutable global obesity crisis – and it’s hitting children particularly hard. More than 41 million children under the age of five are now classed as overweight or obese, and this can go on to cause a lot of serious health problems later in life.
