How to avoid cabin fever during the COVID-19 outbreak

CHICAGO (WLS) -- With everyone stuck at the house during the COVID-19 pandemic, it can get a little challenging to keep parents and kids occupied.

So, Donna Bozzo, known as 'The Go-To Mom' offers some advice on how parents can schedule activities for families while at home during the "shelter-in-place" order for Illinois residents.

Donna suggested parents set up work stations for their kids during the day, so they can take breaks from their work like they would during a normal school day.

Donna also suggested parents could set up cooking times with kids to prepare dinner while everyone is at home together.

Family game nights could also be a great way to pass the time with classics like Yahtzee, charades or even making up new games for the family with all this extra time.
