The boss babe and brains behind StyLush Couture and StyLush Mom, Bijal Vohra, combines Indian aesthetics and designer wear. But in this time of quarantine, she also has some great advice for parents.
With the quarantine measure in place how to keep kids at home occupied in the right way? Thank God! There is an answer to this! It is a blessing that we are all living in the age of digital literacy. There are several online resources for fun-based activities, educational activities, and learning modules that can keep a child occupied yet learn something meaningful without being at school. Staying all day at home, kids are bored, and as parents, we are at a loss of ideas and ways that keep them occupied!
Since many kids are/will be home from school, Vohra shared an awesome list of ideas from a parent who homeschools and a pediatrician friend!
