The positive side of Coronavirus:
I would like to share how positively I and my family took this coronavirus.
So, mommies, the day 1st lockdown had been announced everyone was under shock as we never experienced such phase in life we Indians are just not used to be at home 24/7. But now for our safety only we have to follow this. But slowly slowly when we realized this is a long term state and not a day’s thing then I planned a few things for my family.
I would like to start with my kid, who is just 8 years old. I understood that now as he is at home full day free and roaming then why not teach him some life skills? Not very hard and difficult ones but yeah he can also contribute in small daily chores. So I started from folding his clothes and put them back in his cupboard, properly arrange his cupboard, like shorts on one side, full pants are one side, sleeveless t-shirts are next, full sleeves are on one side and so on. This thing taught him how to manage things.
Then I also asked him to help me in the kitchen. SO whenever I would finish cleaning all the vessels he would dry them with kitchen napkin and arrange properly in the kitchen trolley. Here he learned the shapes of the vessels to make them fit in the trolley.
Then I taught him mopping the floor with the mop, which is again a very easy task. Here he learned the hygiene.
I also taught him to water the plants and feed our pets love birds, where he learned responsibility.
He also learned to make his bed once he is up in the morning, and also I asked him to pick up his toys once he is done playing, here also he learned responsibility to pick up his things.
Whenever we sit for any meal, I asked him to serve dish, bowl, and spoon to my all family members, where he learned to share as well.
These were the things that my kiddo learned. And about my family, we learned we eat together without putting on TV, we learned to laugh together without any gadgets. We all do complete housework and everyone does his share, as all know the maids are not allowed to be in.
So tell me, mommies, where are we in loss? This lockdown made my son independent and made my complete family responsible to do their things and help each other.
