The pandemic has been emotionally taxing for all of us.More so for parents,as we have to keep our own emotions in check & be there for our children

The second wave has caused a lot of anxieties & frustrations to resurface.Although we find ways to cope with it,it is more difficult for our children to do so.They come to us with questions such as why it isn’t ending,how long will it last & when will we be able to go out again

When answering such questions,we need to be sensitive & explain the importance of staying at home.So here are a few simple tips to help our children cope with these uncertain times.

✅Acknowledge their feelings.We should help our children understand that it is normal to feel overwhelmed in such situations.

✅Structure their day by alternating activities between their chores/school work & playtime.

✅Make sure they keep in touch with friends & family by setting up video calls once or twice a week.

Remember to also create a ritual for self-care. It is important that we manage our stress.
The pandemic has shown us how uncertainties can hit us,any time.This is why it is important to always be prepared with a plan,especially to financially protect us & our loved ones when such situations arise.When looking at investments,I realized that a term plan best suits this need as it financially protects our loved ones in case of an unfortunate event & also financially protects us against life-threatening illnesses.
One suitable option I found was the iProtect Smart term plan from ICICI Prudential Life.It is an All-In-One plan that provides a 360-degree financial safety net.It financially protects our loved ones in case of an unfortunate event with a large life cover.It also offers financial protection for us against life-threatening illnesses such as heart attack,cancer & many more.In fact, it covers a total of 34 critical illness for which money is paid out on the detection, without the need for any hospital bills.It even covers COVID-19 life claims
Thus,we can rest assured knowing that we will be financially protected against uncertainties

Kyuki agar tayari sahi ho toh jeet pakki hai!
