It turns out that even the royal family struggles with virtual learning, and the supernanny is sharing some tips to help parents through it. When the COVID-19 pandemic started, a lot of schools moved to virtual learning. This kept children at home, and safer from the virus. Even though schools have reopened in states for in-person learning, some parents are choosing to keep their children home and have them continue to learn virtually. While the idea was to keep them at a lower risk of contracting the virus, it comes with its own challenges.

Parents have been struggling with how to help their children learn from home, especially when they also have to get work down. According to The Resident, the supernanny to the royal family is sharing some tips that could help parents out there.

Sarah Hankinson is the resident “supernanny,” and she is sharing some tips for parents to keep children happy and learning while in lockdown. One of the most important tips is to keep a routine. Sarah states that a routine is so important and that it will help to keep mom “sane” and her children entertained. Children thrive off a routine and if mom and dad can stick as close as they can to a typical school day then it will be much easier when the children do go back.

If you want to get a better idea on how to help your child, ask for a quick conversation with your child’s teacher. Find out how they learn, so that you know which skills to help them on and what strategies will help them most. It will also help you figure out if you can plan ahead for their next week of learning. Being prepared is helpful when it comes to managing stress and frustration.

Sarah isn’t the only royal staffer to share some tips either. According to Marie Claire, Maria Borrallo is a nanny to the royal children, and she outlined an ideal day when doing virtual learning, and a lot of it involved going outside. Maria and Sarah are both advocates for getting children outside during the day and that being outside is a great place to learn. While you are outside, it is advised that you ask your child questions. Asking them questions is a great way to get their brain working in a non-traditional setting. Every opportunity is a moment for learning, and one of the most important tips she had was that you need to keep everything fun.
