Social isolation can be difficult for everyone and especially for our children.
The daily school routine includes lots of opportunities for students to practice their social skills with their friends and fellow students during lessons and breaks which is important for them to stay happy and healthy.
Now we are expected to stay physically apart for the foreseeable future it’s important to ensure our children can stay in touch with their classmates and friends to share their feelings and experiences over the coming weeks.
We’re lucky that we live in an era that provides lots of tools to enable us to keep in touch. Two apps that have proved to be very popular in the current climate are Zoom and Houseparty. Each of these are free to subscribe and enable users to easily create group video chats.
