Make online class easy for kids
I would give a tagline called ” black magic” for the pandemic we were never prepared for. The emergence of this situation acquired the capability of everyone’s survival. From a parent’s perspective, the dilemma is tough and from the children’s perspective, the situation is clueless. This hardship displayed several destructions, one of which was education.
The closure of schools with a mere notice left everyone in confusion. The holidays were extended from days to months, later on from months to years now. This specific consequence from the crisis disrupted the entire education hierarchy. As the schools were closed and classes were made in to online classes, the school administration and the parents were put into enormous complications.
The control over kids was falling out of the boat, as kids were merely forgetting their daily routines and everything turned upside down. The virtual classes helped out in this situation, but the parents felt it was hard to make their kids sit for online classes. Indeed the kids were equally bored sitting in front of the screen. This made the parents wonder whether the virtual classes benefit!
Is virtual classes a boon?
The virtual classes were the only choice when the government was investigating for children’s betterment and safety during the pandemic. They found this could work out in the case of teachers meeting children online once a day. But the introspection here is, there is a huge difference between the kids reacting to the online classes versus the grown-ups.
The children above 10-12 years old are aware of the pattern of online classes and their Importance, but the kids from kindergarten level are oblivious.

Though the majority of child care is taken care of by the school management and teachers, a part of that is left in the hands of parents on account of this unavoidable situation.
