Are Your Kids Fighting the Corona Blues?
As parents are facing the devastation of their lives being turned upside down, sometimes parents lose sight that their children’s lives have been also turned upside down. Men and women all over are battling a loss of jobs, essentials working overtime with fear for their own health, domestic violence, fear, depression, and so many more overwhelming feelings and circumstances thanks to Covid-19. What about our children? Are they also feeling the Corona blues?
Developing Self Confidence In Kids
Self-confidence is an important factor in the life of anyone, young or old, and self-confidence begins at an early age, during childhood, when all of a person’s perception of themselves and the world around them begins. Parents play a vital role in the development of self confidence in children, and there are numerous ways in which they can give their child’s confidence a healthy and effective boost.
One of the unique aspects of teaching at a small Christian School is that the teachers have a chance to get to know the kids on a deeper level. It is a level that is more than just passing them in a hall. We attend a camp at the beginning of the school year where the teachers and some parents stay in cabins with a group of young people for the week. We spend the week getting to know each other as a school. During camp this year, I had a chance to lodge with the 9th grade girls. They opened my eyes to a whole new perspective.
Reading Books That Teach
Education does not always have to be through stacks of worksheets and lists of instructions. Children learn quite a bit by simply reading books. Providing your child books to read that also helps them gain knowledge of the stuff around them will help broaden their minds.

I remember sitting at my Papa’s knee listening to him tell stories of when he rode in the back of a horse and carriage going down the “uptown” streets of our small North Carolina town. I would sit in awe trying to transport back to that place. Imagining a street with no cars. Trying to picture my Papa as a young boy playing marbles on the wood slatted sidewalks. Quite honestly it was beyond my comprehension and still is. But what I would give to just be a fly on the wall and witness the simplicity of that life, if only for a day.
