How to Take Care of Your Children, If You Are Infected by COVID-19
3. Get Some Rest and Take Care of Yourself
It’s as crucial for you to take care of yourself as taking care of your children. If you don’t take much rest and stress over children’s care, you will be less likely to become well soon. You need proper rest and sleep.
Don’t skip your meals and medicines, exercise daily to keep the stress away. The sooner you get well, the better. If you have a caregiver at home, let them take 100% responsibility for your kids. In the meantime, you should take time for yourself to recover soon.
4. Encourage Your Children to Follow Safety measures
While distancing yourself, you should make sure that your children are following all the safety measures. Try to set some examples. Tell your kids’ the caregiver to promote hygienic practices among them. They should distance themselves from you, keep themselves clean, and wash their hands frequently.
Tell your caregiver to explain why they need to wash their hands and keep themselves clean. You and the caregiver should also encourage them to stay active to maintain healthy mental and physical conditions.
5. Keep Children Healthy
Just because they are at less risk does not mean they can’t get affected by it. They need to follow all the safety measures to keep themselves healthy.
Tell your children to follow these safety rules strictly- avoid public transportation, maintain at least 1 meter of distance from people, wear protective gear, masks, and others when going outside; avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth, and wash their hands.
