1. Give understanding to children about the corona virus

When a child’s learning activities are moved from school to home, you may have already given an explanation regarding the corona virus. Well, before the day of Eid arrives, there’s nothing wrong if you re-explain the current conditions on children. For example, giving an understanding that this year’s Eid we will not go anywhere, because it is still trying to prevent transmission of the corona virus.

Explain in simple language, that this condition makes you and your family must refrain from going home or meeting grandparents and other children and siblings. That way, your child can hope to be tolerant and still happy to celebrate Lebaran #dirumahaja.

“Certainly our children now know that there is indeed a corona virus condition. Explanations regarding the corona virus can also be found, there are reading books also online so we can explain corona simply to children,” said Firesta Farizal, M. Psi, Child and Youth Psychologist when contacted by the MOM coil on Tuesday (5/19).

“So, we cannot get together, even though we usually get together for Eid. After that, explain how to spread the corona virus, and others,” he continued.

2. Prayers in congregation id #dirumahaja

If usually you and your family go to the nearest mosque to perform idolat prayer together with other residents, now the worship service is also forced to be done from home. Remember, this is again to prevent transmission of the corona virus.

Nevertheless, the prayer at home can actually be a new experience that can further enhance bonding between you and family members at home. Yes Moms, to lead the idol prayer, you can ask dad to do it. If this is my father’s first experience of becoming an Imam of Salat Id, there is no harm in seeking information in advance about the procedure from a trusted source. After performing the idol prayer, don’t forget to forgive each other, Moms.

By eating a special dish of Lebaran, the moment of Eid al-Fitr at home will definitely still feel good.
