Sample COVID-19 Schedule for WFHers with Kids

I'm writing this from my bed because I am sick. Is it Coronavirus? I have no idea. I'm not in the 'high-risk' group, therefore, I shouldn't get tested, according to my doctor. Also, going out when it isn't medically necessary would be very dangerous for those who come in contact with me, so I'm stuck home.

In the meantime, I've noticed lots and lots of advice floating around for what to do with your kids while you're all stuck at home. Regardless of whether your kids get the week off or they're going to be doing school from a computer, I would still use a schedule very much like this one.

All my kiddos were already using online school before it was necessary, so our lives aren't going to be disrupted at all, but for those that are new to this whole situation, I thought it might be nice to see what a day in our life looks like and let you use it too.

I will preface it by saying to do what works for you. This schedule is not, I repeat is not, the end-all be-all of schedules for those suddenly finding themselves working at home. Play around with it, but set boundaries on behavior and do not waver. That's the key. Kids love and thrive in a routine, but the most important part is that you let them know what is and isn't acceptable in terms of behavior above all else. It'll make everything else much smoother.

Here are some of my favorite resources too, but like I said above, Pinterest is your friend. If you have problems with finding the correct phrasing for searching, shoot me a message and I will definitely help you out!

All the resources below are listed as being for teachers, but you can use them too, and I checked them all today to make sure they were still free. If you run into any broken links or issues, please let me know.

Hope this helps!
