Dr Gummer, founder and CEO of Dr Gummer’s Good Play Guide says:

​“Parents  shouldn’t feel pressure to take the place of teachers, but keeping children engaged  with some form of learning will make it easier for them to settle back into school. Play  is a great way to support children’s development and can be good for the whole  family as it reduces stress and promotes attachment.     

There are a lot of skills that children need to learn in order to be independent,  healthy, stable adults and lots of those are easily taught at home – cooking, money  management, DIY, laundry etc. 

But parents need to make sure they’re ok too – the Parent-Centred parenting  approach is very apt for this situation. We’re in this together and everyone should be  being kind, helpful and tolerant as possible – it’s good for children to see how grown  ups act in times of uncertainty and stress and ideally develop successful coming  mechanisms themselves.”
