Social Distancing resources

by Chrissy Somers, Owner + Founder of Families on the Fox

We have officially entered into the strangest and most memorable time in the history of our existence... or at least of our children's! 

 

Because of COVID-19 (aka Coronavirus), we have been asked to "stay in place" by our state's governor, JB Pritzker, until mid-April when we will be given further instruction.  In the meantime, our kids are stuck at home and unable to socialize in person with their friends, let alone attend school, learn, and keep their consistent schedules.

Luckily for us, technology has come a long way and it is allowing our kids (and OURSELVES) to find a little bit of sanity.  Yes, we could park our kids in front of Netflix, YouTube, or any app of choice and you would get NO JUDGEMENT from this chick! You do whatever the hell works for YOU!

That being said, I thought it would be nice to compile a list of great resources that came out of this clusterfuck of a situation we have found ourselves in!  Simply click on the image to be directed to the resource!
