“When I was in 12th class, my whole year was almost like a lockdown. I had almost locked myself up in a room upstairs preparing for JEE,” the CM tweeted to some Anunay Kumar who sought some IIT tips from the IITian CM.
“Explain to your kids what coronavirus is. Make them understand how this virus spreads, tell them why it’s not safe to go out to play in the park. Some parents are fed up that their kids are spending too much time on mobile. Sometimes it’s okay, parents will also agree,” the CM said.
“Will we all die?” a kid posed this question to the expert panel that conducted the parenting session on Saturday. “The answer is no. But yes, this is an unprecedented situation. Parents can try to engage their kids in some indoor play activities,” an expert who was on the panel said.
