Advice for Parents

Those on the PSP Expo team who are parents share their advice for working, homeschooling, and staying sane: 

  • Keep a schedule! Still wake up and go to bed at similar hours.
  • Then keep a daily routine.
  • Mix up activities so you're not doing the same thing for a long period of time
  • Facebook Messenger for Kids so kids can stay connected to their classmates.
  • Rewards like M&Ms

Fun activities: 

  • Baking - treats and bread. Or make your own pizza
  • Game nights - with board games
  • Reading
  • Crafts & painting
  • Weather permitting - outdoor time - walks, sidewalk chalk games, a duck pond, bikes, scooters
  • Car washing
  • Birthday parades for friends - decorate the car & make signs
  • Dress up with wigs, costumes
  • Gardening
  • Movie night in the driveway - project the movie on the garage door; other families can join from their own driveways

What to Watch: 

  • Educational content daily on PBS
  • ABCMouse.com - great content and is free for 30 days, ages 2-8
  • Disney Plus/GoNoodle

Self Care for Parents: 

  • Zoom meet ups and happy hours with Friends
  • Parents' Facebook Groups to let you know you're not alone
