Sustainable Parent-Student Bonding: Opportunity Amidst Crisis

In the traditional school education system, the student to teacher connect is most likely the strongest, as they spend so much time together at school. The student to parent connection is inherently a strong bonding, but some parents engage with their children in learning activities more than others. During the nCOVID crisis and the lockdown, a couple of things have changed: Even though technology is used in remote teaching (retaining the teacher-student connect to some extent), the assigning of learning activities and encouraging the children to do it collaboratively has enriched the parent-children engagement. Most parents are also at home, and it is a good time to engage them in learning activities that are fun. The parents also send their feedback, including the pictures and videos of their children doing their activities. I hope this practice is sustainable until the schools begin, and can also sustain in the new normal.
