The pandemic ushered in a new era of home life – one in which kids and parents are working alongside each other, sharing the home as a combination office and classroom. With this drastic and dynamic shift, there’s an opportunity for children to learn skills that they wouldn’t normally acquire until later on in life, often not until they begin working.
Many of those skills are learned via observation, and now the people they’re observing most are their parents. They’re seeing adults working, problem solving, and persevering in challenging times. Parents can turn this otherwise inopportune situation into a lasting learning opportunity that will ultimately help their children achieve success. Think of it as Parenting 2.0.
The Flexible Learning Strategies for Out of School Children programme is a UNESCO initiative with the aim of supporting inclusive and quality education for every child in the region. Our goal is to reach the remaining and most vulnerable 5% of children with no access to education in the region and support quality improvements in learning for every child.
