For now, the safest solution for everyone is to remain indoors, but nothing can replace fresh air and outdoor activities. Kids are full of stamina and it is hard for them to tire themselves out in an enclosed space. Further, visiting the parks where the kids spent a large portion of their daily lives is not advised.

While some parents have the commodity of letting their kids play in their backyards and balconies, some fear even this form of going outside and prefer to keep their kids indoors for their safety.

Contagion is possible whenever we go outside, but opening your windows and letting the airflow in is very important. This is a unique time which we can spend with our kids, and we can compensate for everything by showing them love and kindness in these worrying times.
