Parenting During a Pandemic (an Update)

The Katie Lance Podcast Episode 087

Are you parenting during this pandemic? I’ve shared a few updates this year about our family and how we are managing through this time. But it has been a few months so today I’m sharing an update.

I’ll be honest, this year has been tough. I have to say our boys have been so resilient. In this podcast I’m sharing a few things that have worked well for us, as well as a few that have not.   

Lessons learned:

  • Screen time. We still monitor screen time, but we’ve also become more flexible. Video games have become a great way for our boys to stay connected with their friends. 
  • Routines. For our family, we thrive on routines. We are huge believers that kids need to do chores. We also come together every night for dinner. I also have a special night time routine of reading to my boys each night. 
  • Having a pet has been huge! If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you’ve seen our cute kitty cat, Rex. He’s been so wonderful to have during this time and brought us so much joy!
  • Getting outside. Getting out every day – playing baseball, taking walks, riding scooters. Getting fresh air every day has been so important. 
  • Being on the same team. This year we are spending more time together as a family than we probably ever will. Coming together and checking in with each other and working together as a team has been key for us.
