Every family has had to make adjustments in response to the pandemic. These have varied from minor inconveniences to complete restructurings of the way we live. But it hasn’t been all bad — in fact, some new changes may be here to stay. Thank you to all the readers who shared new routines that they hope stick around.


“We started a daily chart for the kids and us to help remember things we need to do everyday (even though we aren’t leaving the house). Since we had a system before, we’ve had to change that system and the chart is definitely helping. Think we will keep it going even after this is over.” – Lisa


“Floor picnics! Every Friday night we set up a “floor friendly”dinner on the floor and we watch something fun on tv. Our two-year-old really looks forward to it. ” – Terra
