The shift to virtual education can overwhelm kids but parents can certainly make it better for them. Like in traditional learning, some kids adapt more easily than others. This also applies to e-learning. While every kid is unique, there are ways to encourage and help them improve their learning skills. Below are some ideas to help you in the new normal:
Take away distractions
If you have already set up a study corner for your child, make sure his or her favorite toy is out of sight. Instead of playthings, surround the study area with memory-boosting items like puzzles. Reduce the clutter on the study table too. Manage the tablet or computer to make sure no web surfing or gaming will happen.
Schedule brain breaks
Squeeze in some rest time or quick breaks. Sitting in front of a computer is a tough ordeal even for kids. Scheduled breaks can lessen the stress of e-learning and can boost brain function, too. Allow your kid some “me” time, exercise or provide their favorite snacks.
Reward kids for a job well done. Rewards can be in the form of positive reinforcements, applause or celebrations. Validations are very important for kids. They expect some feedback for the tasks they have completed no matter how small. Apart from keeping them motivated, providing rewards can also help boost their self-esteem.
Keep them healthy
Kids can learn better when they are healthy. Teach your kids healthy habits especially during this pandemic. Remind them not to touch their face, not to share masks or drinking cups, wash their hands frequently, and more. Serve them healthy food, ensure they get enough sleep and make time for exercise to make sure their body’s immune system works properly.
Given the current situation, kids may not be able to do their usual activities but through proper guidance, they can adapt easily with changes and be more innovative. And to ensure they still get proper nutrition and diet, food supplements like Nutri10Plus, can help to fill in nutritional gaps especially in children who are picky eaters. Nutri10Plus is a food supplement with CGF, Taurine, Lysine, Zinc plus Vitamins A, C, D, E, and B-complex. Nutri10Plus can help boost a child’s appetite for having the highest content of Lysine. Nutri10Plus helps maximize physical growth, enhance brain development, and helps promote overall immunity.
To include added protection for our active and strong kids, boost their immune system by giving them vitamin C and zinc like Dayzinc. The body’s best defense against infections is the immune system. Parents need to make sure to keep it stronger. Dayzinc syrup contains sodium ascorbate and ascorbic acid for its Vitamin C (100mg) plus zinc (5mg). Vitamin C and zinc can help fight free radicals in the body and help protect against infections and diseases.
Dayzinc and Nutri10Plus are your child’s wellness tandem! Both Dayzinc and Nutri10Plus are available in major drugstores nationwide such as Mercury Drug, Watsons, South Star Drug and TGP.
