Children in the Philippines stayed for over 20 months in house quarantine without seeing their friends and only having home schooling. This was necessary due to this corona-pandemic. Resilience of many children and their families who could not make any family trips was tested. As a family, we tried to strengthen our daughter's and our resilience in doing regularly in-house exercises, swimming in our pool, making enjoyable alternative programs at home like karaoke. Showing our deep affections to each other is also central. It was crucial that we have positively adapted to this severe situation. It remains a highly challenging time and we are hopeful that things become better.
