Make screen time beneficial
Full home-based learning (HBL) for students means plenty of screen time at home. When your child needs a break, enrich them with edutainment content instead of games and entertainment! A recent popular choice is the
Storyline Online YouTube channel where celebrities (like Michelle Yeoh and Oprah Winfrey) read a wide array children’s books to inspire children to read more.

Can’t socialise? Pick up a new skill/hobby
The best way for seniors to minimise risk of contracting COVID-19 is to minimise face-to-face interactions, and avoid stepping out of the home. While waiting for the situation to improve, try keeping your brain active by learning a new skill like how to speak a foreign language or play a musical instrument (you can find plenty of such instructional videos free on YouTube).
You can also try puzzle-solving games for seniors, available for free at online sites like
Seniorlink Blog. Or play card games and chess/checkers with your spouse.
