The first thing is to explain to the children why the school is closed: how?
"one must Not lie on the epidemic, is to be explained, with words suited to the age, maybe even with some video. And we must do so without sowing panic, remaining calm you, first of all, explaining the rules, as the because of the simple washing of hands help him and all."
With the kids at home all day how to behave?
"The schools are moving by sending more and more lessons and tasks to do: this is not the right way. Maria Montessori taught that to get something good at a distance, you always have to connect to a presence. The teachers of the primary, above all, send personal messages to their pupils, in agreement with the parents, ask how they are, not to load them with exercises. Each child must understand that the teacher thinks of him and, together, to what he can learn from the situation in which it is located".
But what to propose to the children in the primary?
"it Is an opportunity to rediscover the well-being together. Just a walk to explain why someone wearing the mask, to learn the name of trees or birds if you are walking in the woods or in a park. And then you incentives to hear on the phone, mates, avoid tv or video games such as “caregivers.” Talk with them. And ask for help in the house, it is a nice game.
And with the students that do?
"With the pre-adolescent is more complicated, a good solution is the work of the home: let them stretch, make the bed, take them to wash the car. Also, as you must boil the water for pasta, you learn the important concepts of the sciences".
And how to organize for those who work?
"Go," the rediscovery of the dimension of co-operative parenting. Share everything: baby-sitting, time, grandparents. Get organized between families: today I keep them I will, and tomorrow you planning together with the school time as an opportunity to grow even in this difficulty. Is to be reconstructed in a relationship emotional and social with the children, where the school operates in a collaborative way, not in exemption from liability".
