Calling a family meeting is important to set ground rules and expectations for the duration of this situation.
Ask all to participate and look into what is their understanding of the situation, what this means and why are we doing this…it will give everyone a sense of purpose and meaning.
Validate emotions as children may feel like things are not fair.
Write together a poster with ground rules, decide on the ground rules together, like how many hours of devices and games for example, chores, cooking and ask everyone’s contribution to family household.
Why not take this opportunity to reorganise drawers, desks, cupboards and do a clear out or even redecorate a room, providing you have everything you need.
