Flattening the curve – Online purchases become the norm
Updated: Jun 30, 2020
During the circuit breaker, all Singaporeans are doing their best to stay at home as much as they can. This means reducing the frequency to go out – that includes buying your meals, withdrawing cash from ATMs. With the recent announcement by McDonald’s that takeaways are not allowed during this period; online deliveries are becoming the more frequent way to shop.
Parenting is a struggle – especially during this stay-home period where parents struggle with home-based learning and coping with their own work. With never-ending household chores, home-based learning questions, and your own work commitments, preparing all three meals for your family can be a struggle for some parents.
Teaching our children how to make purchases online – should be added to our To-do list of things to do during this stay-home period. With online purchases becoming the norm, we should teach them how to be independent and make online payments. Equip them with the necessary skills they need to be able to independently order food online, buy necessities, so that you need not worry about cooking up that next meal while you are still on that lunch meeting call!
