Pro Tip: How to keep your child Active and Entertained at home as a working parent
Through recent client calls over the past few days, one common thread I have heard is: “Sorry about the background noise, trying to keep the kids entertained”. So, all parents are struggling with this as they are working, and the children don’t have anywhere to go.
Given most offices are WFH for the rest of the month, most of us are getting affected with the lack of workout time (or just simply following an active lifestyle) while consciously stopping ourselves from paying a visit to the kitchen to fix a quick snack. The other aspect is to also keep our kids entertained while we are taking multiple calls and meetings.
During this time, we see an increase in TV time – to help kids stay quite. However, one thing we encourage is productive screen time. Being a father of a rather active 4-year old, I have to find unique ways to ensure his energy is utilized in the right way. While we do try puzzles, colouring, some amount of TV time, we find that being active indoors is the best energy utilizer.
While we intended Fitb.ee to focus more on instilling a change in youth fitness at a young age, we realized that scenarios like the current one we are in, is also a way for parents to give their child a productive hour of screen time.
