The New Togetherness: Tips to Survive and Thrive Thru Cov-19

have we have forgotten how to really enjoy our families? Have we gotten so caught up in internet-based lifestyles and over-commitments that we sometimes feel like we are in a downward spiral with no way out? The current viral threat to our country may have some unforeseen benefits for our families. Spending a great deal of time at home, we can, at the very least, make the best of it and perhaps enrich our lives, creating very special memories.

Tip 1: Family Calendar. If you do not already have one where family members each put their assignments, appointments, etc. - get or make one TODAY! It must be kept in a place where everyone can see it and use it. Consider different colored pens or pencils so you can tell quickly who has made an entry. Online appointments and schedules should be placed here as well.

Many schools for K 1-12 and advanced learning through colleges and universities have closed or are using online facilities with pre-scheduled times and events that may impact the entire family. These schedules should be placed on the calendar as well. Taking the time to this helps avoid conflict and encourages respecting each person's boundaries.

Tip 2: Routine. It is essential everyone in the family has specific assigned responsibilities (this includes children ages 5 and up). Keeping the space generally neat and organized helps keep everyone calm.

Someone needs to gather trash on trash day, beds need to be made, cooking needs to be done, the table needs to be set for meals, dishes must be washed, floors need to be vacuumed and/or mopped, etc. these should be rotated (age-appropriate) at least weekly so everyone participates and is held accountable.

Tip 3: Fun Time at Night. Get everyone involved in looking for board games, cards, puzzles, etc. that are physical - not internet-based! Depending on the number of people in the house, then figure out whether one theme at night works, or multiple activities will work better.

Another idea involves physical books or magazines. Having children read stories out loud to the family helps them develop communication skills. They learn to enunciate new words, learn geography based on the story setting, and dialogue about the story overall. With skillful questions from adults, the also learn to evaluate plot, characters, and whether they would recommend the book or magazine to others.

Tip 4: Communication. Frequent communication is critical. One way to do this is to ask everyone at mealtime what they are grateful for that day. This also means thinking about having doors open (except the bathroom of course) all day until bedtime. The exception, of course, is those who are working from home! It is vital that families pay attention to each other - isolation is not healthy at times like these!
