Shout out to the KIDS

This one’s for the little guys and girls, the little hero’s that we have forgotten to thank.

The children. COVID-19 will forever be part of their childhood growing up and something we did not go through when we were growing up. We forget that their world has changed just as much as ours, and just as suddenly. Children have been indoors since the start of lockdown, no more friends or playdates, no more school lunches or aftercare, no more casual clothes days or cake sale days.

After reading this beautiful message Mira Rajput Kapoor posted on her Instagram page MUMbox would like to also give a shout out to the kids.

She wrote with the post:

“Love them. Hug them. Ask them how they feel and let them cry if they’re not okay. Kiss them. Paint with them and let their clothes and the walls get dirty. Watch their favourite cartoon with them. Snuggle up with them. Give them extra ketchup if they ask for it that day. And when you’re tired after doing the dishes and cooking dinner and they say “Mumma can you play with me” remember this time isn’t forever.
Little hands. Big hearts
Love them.”

    ABSOLUTELY AMAZING ARTICLE. I REALLY FEEL FOR ALL OUR KIDS WHO ARE GOING THROUGH THIS. WE JUST HAVE TO STAY POSITIVE AND ENCOURAGING EACH OTHER. KEEP THE FAITH THAT THINGS WILL CHANGE IN THE NEAR FUTURE.

    This post is so touching because so often we as adults forget that children are just as affected by this pandemic as we are. We try to protect them as much as possible and try to close their little eyes and ears to all the bad that’s happening but they see and hear just as much as we do and they are also afraid. My son who is 5 is having a tough time being at home all day and although we have explained the virus to him and he understands what is happening- he is still frustrated and sad that he cannot play with his friends or go to school. As a mother, it crushes my heart when he asks if we are going to die or what is going to happen to us 🙁 bless their little souls. So mommy’s please give your little ones a little more love and attention and be mindful with your words around them as they are absorbing so much in this time.

    Thank you for this inspirational reminder.
    As mother and grandmother I have such a bigger roll to play.
    Sometimes we just need to go back to basics and start loving, caring and paying attention to our loved ones.
