Precautions for children once the lockdown is lifted

precautions for children in lockdown
  • No Playground time - Activities like games, contact sport, etc. that can create unnecessary gatherings must be avoided. Keep your child from going to playgrounds until the virus is completely eradicated or there is a vaccine made available.
no outdoor games
  • Hygiene Practices - Keep telling them, again and again, to wash their hands- before and after eating, after going to the toilet, if they touch shared surfaces such as the railings and door handles. Even when they meet their friends the excitement must not indulge physical contact.
maintain cleanliness
  • Social Distancing - By now social distancing must have been inculcated into a habit. Make sure it is the same for your child. Keep telling them to maintain a social distance until it becomes intrinsic in them and they follow it instinctively.

  • Reduce outside food - Kids can be impossible sometimes. They could become so adamant to buy them outside food/ snack that it could embarrass you in public. Try and make them understand the circumstances, and if they are still adamant, buy them from a place where proper hygiene is maintained.
no outside food
  • Ask them to share their feelings - The situation could be too much for them to take in and they might be a little scared too. It is normal if they show a little anxiety in them. Let them express their feelings and ask as many questions as they want, try and answer them all patiently.
    Be honest if you don’t know the answer.
sharing the feelings
