Cure for the Curse of Quarantine

Dear Shayna,

First of all, I’m a huge fan! I look forward to reading your articles every Shabbat. I have a problem. I am stuck in my house because I’m quarantined and so bored. I’m stuck on Zoom and have no idea what’s going on. I can’t call my friends because they are all in school and I have nothing to do. It’s so hard to be stuck at home. What should I do?


Quarantined and bored

Dear Quarantined,

Plop! Ugh! Here it is: my super-heavy book of suggestions for quarantined kids. I hope you enjoy stories because the many, many answers to your question are enough to make a book.

Let me tell some to you:

1. You can always go on a hike with your immediate family.

2. You can get some paper and pencils and make a book.

3. You can play a board game with someone in your house if you’re bored.

4. You could play sports.

5. You can watch TV.

6. You can cook with help.

And after you do all these things, your friends will finally be home from school and you will be able to talk to them all night! Until the next day… With that, l leave you to do this, but for the future you now know where to go!

Best of luck,

Shayna B.
