I discuss pandemic pods and how they can support you during this current Coronavirus outbreak.
Pandemic pods can take a number of forms, including:
- Parents swapping care for each other’s children, most likely rotating the children between houses, with less of a specific focus on learning (perhaps for younger children)
- Hiring an online tutor to coach a group of students primarily online
- Hiring a caregiver to work with the children in-person to make sure they stay on track with school-provided curriculum
- Either swapping care or hire a caregiver to focus on aspects of learning that aren’t traditionally covered in school (e.g. interest-led learning, explicitly anti-racist, anti-patriarchal learning, etc.)
Jen Lumanlan, a previous guest from episode 68 has put together resources to help you navigate this new world of learning.
Jen Lumanlan holds an M.S. in Psychology (Child Development) and an M.Ed., and hosts the Your Parenting Mojo podcast which is a reference guide for parents of toddlers and preschoolers based on scientific researchers and the principles of respectful parenting. In each episode she examines a topic related to parenting and child development from all sides to help parents understand how to make decisions about raising their children. She lives in California with her husband and daughter.
