Kids cooped up at home due to unexpected school holidays need not devolve into chaos
In the wake of the recent events, wouldn’t it be nice to know you can also ease your child’s concern about public safety? If your kids see that you are worried, they are more likely to be anxious as well. Why not let a nanny or cook shoulder some of the part-time responsibilities in your home while you prepare and protect your family from the COVID-19 pandemic?
Due to the coronavirus parents now have to handle many new concerns, including how to work remotely or decontaminate the family home from any traces of virus. A recent study found that the coronavirus can live on hard surfaces for up to 72 hours, which means that your home needs some serious TLC. An alcohol-based disinfectant (minimum 70% alcohol content) is required to clean your doorknobs, handrails, countertops, and cell phones, and even toys regularly in order to prevent the spread of illness.
How can you do this while attempting to keep all your children in one place, or even better, occupied? With a nanny in the house, your child could remain calm and happy, playing peacefully while you take care of necessary precautions. A nanny could even teach your kids some new games, like how to not touch their faces, or songs to sing while washing their hands. A maid could also help attend to all the disinfection tasks that are mounting.
In addition, with so many companies and organizations issuing remote work policies, more parents are forced to work from home now than ever before. Have you ever tried typing on your laptop with a child around? It’s difficult! They want to play with the keyboard and do everything that you are doing. So, why not hire a nanny to take care of your kids while you take care of your technological connections, equipment and work responsibilities over the coming months?
Many schools, pre-schools, kindergartens & daycare centers are coming under forced closure, which makes it even more important that you have an adult responsible to care for your children. In order to avoid distractions, it’s helpful to have a place that is dedicated to your work–a place where you can focus. A nanny and cook can help provide this sacred space and peace of mind for you, knowing that your children are well-cared for while you turn your mind to more imminent matters.
Staying healthy is of paramount importance right now, and a cook can help you and your family receive proper nutrition while you take other precautions related to corona. Lines in grocery stores are longer due to panic buying, which means you have less time to cook healthy and delicious meals. A cook can help you with these responsibilities, ensuring that your family has plenty of delicious, clean menus to devour while you spend more time together at home.
