A week into the new semester of online learning, we seem to be building a BMH "metaverse", if we want to use the most fashionable word.
Teachers and students are meeting in different "live" rooms every day, each class is constantly messaging on WeChat groups, and many parents and teachers are interacting on the home-school communication platform Seesaw.
We know that students, parents, and teachers have worked very hard during this time, and are constantly overcoming difficulties to adjust to this spring season when they cannot come to school.
On February 24, our school's counselor conducted an online parent meeting for all BMH community members, offering advice and guidance from a professional perspective on how to increase your child's autonomy by learning at home and how to communicate effectively with your child.
We care about each student's learning and psychological state, and we also care about the stress and anxiety that parents face. We are willing to do our best to help everyone and give some warm support.
For students: how to improve study efficiency at home
Psychological adjustment of children at home
Regular work and rest
Be serious, put on the school uniform and dress up

Crying or irritability, or becoming easily conflicted with family members
Abnormal sleep, difficulty falling asleep or waking up early

If students need help with emotional distress, inattention, dyslexia, and other psychological problems, we also welcome you to make an appointment to consult with our counselor or call psychological assistance hotline.
In this uncertain world, we cannot decide on disasters, all we can do is to find a new way out of the chaos and face the hard difficulties with a soft heart.
Having a positive state of mind and assisting each other is the only way to get through difficult times.
