The children are outside again!

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: The world is trying to cope with the new norms forcibly brought to every nation by the COVID-19 pandemic. Among those many new changes is the closure of classrooms to avoid physical contact among peers.

Though the pandemic and its uncertainty brings its stress and a feeling of discontent, we’ve noticed that there are some positive things to look at and enjoy during the time given to spend with our children and families.

Families have re-discovered quality time bringing back ‘old-school games.’

After the relaxation of measures, there are more trips to the rivers by the public to enjoy the natural wonders and relaxing waters.

We all got used to lіving іn а vеrу buѕу wоrld, runnіng tо оr frоm wоrk, аttеndіng mееtіngѕ, ѕеmіnаrѕ, соnfеrеnсеѕ еtс. Веіng аt hоmе hаѕ gіvеn uѕ thе орроrtunіtу tо brіng bасk fаmіlу соnvеrѕаtіоnѕ оn thе роrсh, and еnfоrсе rеаdіng tіmе while fаmіlу іntеrасtіоn іѕ bеіng ѕtrеngthеnеd. Many fаmіlіеѕ аrе еvеn hаvіng mеаlѕ tоgеthеr rаthеr thаn ruѕhіng оut thе dооr.

While returning from a river day trip, I noticed that children were outdoors, playing with their toys, some playing with leaves, others running around their yards. It brought amazing memories back and reminded me that sometimes we must pause, inhale the fresh air and appreciate all the beautiful things around us.

Children appreciate their immediate surroundings and make the best out of it in playtime.  Finally, they appreciate having fun outdoors again and put away the devices!

So, let us enjoy that the children are outside again.
