When you book a Care Date with a Joymaker, we suggest you keep the following in mind:

Go over the basic guidance from the CDC

Talk about social distancing, hand-washing, sterilizing high-touch items like phones and taking all the reasonable precautions noted by the CDC.  In an effort to adhere to social distancing measures, your caregiver and the kids are limited to activities in the house, the family’s backyard or around the neighborhood.

Get specific about kids’ hygiene

Work with your Joymaker to come up with a system for boosting their hygienic practices (think frequent hand-washing and teaching them to cough into their elbows) and minimizing their risk of exposure.

Have an open dialogue about the kids’ mental health

Check in with your Joymaker about your children’s mental and emotional state to see if they have noted any concerning remarks or behavior.  The University of Michigan has put together this collection of kid-friendly books that address the tough questions that come with things that happen to our bodies. While this list goes beyond the coronavirus, it’s a great one to keep on hand for other health concerns in the future.

Joshin has everything you need to find the right match and book with confidence.
