Grown ups

Kids love things to be 'Black and white' so we can do lots to help them in a world of grey!  Here are some practical tips!
  1. Keep things well structured!  Kids love to know what is happening and when it is happening.  Why not create a brightly coloured and fun home school timetable together?  You can download and print this one or create your own!65fef9d09a63c65e60b1acffd45550
  2. Have clear rules!  Kids love praise. 'Well done, you're doing brilliantly!' is what we would all love to hear!  Why not create a fun reward system - it doesn't have to be costly, a simple smiley face drawn on a chart is a great reward for children!   You can download and print this one or create your own!7984c192553fd2c58a4cc267987263
  3. Mix it up a bit!  There needs to be a good balance of learning, movement and fun.  Give children time to complete tasks as well as playtime and space to move.  It is good to have designated areas in your home for different activities: a desk for work, a room for playtime, the garden for sports etc. (Image:thewirecutter.com)  wfhkids-lowres-102209244-330x2
  4. Check-in! Regularly ask your child how are they feeling.  Smaller children may struggle to express their feelings - use a feeling poster (below) to ask children how they are feeling at the moment or use a loved teddy or doll and ask the child to tell you how teddy/doll is feeling today.  Through their response, you will gain insight into their feelings.  Encourage your child to think of ways to help Teddy/doll.  Remember, feelings of sadness or anger are all feelings that God has given us.  In and of themselves they are not wrong, but dwelling on them can lead to negative thinking.  Therefore, it is good to encourage children to pray to God being honest with their feelings, but also asking for God's help to give their negative feelings to him.  For more help with this, please get in touch.NEW-feelings-chart-for-web
  5. Let your child take the lead.  Your child knows that God is good and that he is loving.  Read this wonderful blog about a question from a ten-year old.
