Shelter in place driving my son and I nuts
Posted 30 March 2020 - 11:39 AM
Restricting has been easy for me so far, but the s/o is considering shutting his gates until this ‘blows over’. When he’s home it’s harder to restrict, as he gets on my case a lot about my eating. I wake up early to exercise so that no one knows. Off topic, but I decided to throw that in there.
Any ideas to keep my sanity as well as my son’s?

I'm sorry I can't give you any advice since I don't have kids myself. I'd just like to tell you that I have the utmost respect for parents who are taking care of their children in this difficult situation.
And kudos for you for doing exercises early in the morning. This is something I also do so that nobody else notices it.

man, I am right there with you but also have to do online schooling with my son. He is a little older (7) so in some ways that is easier than a 4 year old.
My best advice is to wear him out as much as you can--I know that may be hard being indoors, can you still go for walks? I take my son out in the mornings and we will jog together and run around. That is #1 IMO because kids have so much energy. If you can't go out, maybe make obstacle courses inside or watch some PE videos or dance videos online and do them with him. Consistency is also key, especially for that age. Try to have a routine during the day (I know that can be hard!) so he knows what to expect. Beyond that, I just try to remember that as stressed out as we are as adults, kids are feeling that energy too. I read an article about kids regressing during this time, like reverting to behaviors they did when they were younger, being clingy, whining, etc. and it is really true. I try to remember that this is hard for my son and it is a huge change, and to add in stressed out parents just make it worse. No one is perfect and I hope I'm not coming across as judgmental! I'm just saying be easy on yourself and your son.
