Few days back we use to prohibit our kids using mobiles, tablets and laptops. Whilst the pandemic has taken the country by storm forcing us into a lockdown situation we are stuck in our homes. A grave situation has developed, humans are social beings and crave interaction. Unprecedented times demands unprecedented solution.
This is the time where Social media landed as a superhero. The internet which my mom and ” ME as a mom” cursed has turned a blessing in disguise in this lockdown.
My kids are attending scheduled online classes. My 9 year old daughter is attending school on Zoom App, whilst my 3 year old son have took keen interest in his online piano lessons. Both my kids gets to see their friends during their classes which ends the monotony of learning on YouTube.
To my surprise, my father in law attends anushthans and meditation classes via Skype and Zoom App which connects him with his friends all over the nation. He is absolutely thrilled getting in touch with all of them online. He loves to hear Bhajan ,News on phone as no newspaper is available so he update himself from global information through internet ,social media,news apps.
Fun Learning Apps
Honestly telling you , before lockdown I never searched for fun learning app for my kids because that again lead to screen time and I want them to minimize the screen time. This lock down has changed my state of mind. I too had searched for the online classes and videos for children to keep then engage in a learning manner and to keep my kids spirit high.
My hubby and my daughter beat each other score in lawn tennis.
If you followed me on instagram , you will know I have also started COOKING WITHOUT FIRE series.
It give so much relief to see your loved one , infront of you not far off. Connected with my family and cousins with video calling through whats app . Social media like whatsapp,wechat,messenger bring close to our loved one.We shared positivity and laughter with each other. This keep away anxiety of lockdown.
As far as I am concerned I have occupied myself with reading ad writing blogs. Blogchatter A2Z is an amazing platform for doing so, simultaneously I improve my Alexa rank.
Love to read others blogs and challenge what to write for next topic. Put my thinking cap on and connect me to few great blogger friends like Noor,Roma,Arushi,Simrit,Sindhu,Ujjwal, Archana.
