As many parents have opted to do in the era of coronavirus, Ayesha Curry has her children learning remotely.
Ayesha Curry has three children with her husband, Golden State Warriors superstar Steph Curry: 8-year-old Riley, 5-year-old Ryan, and 2-year-old Canon Curry. In a recent interview with PEOPLE, Ayesha explained the tricks she uses to keep her kids focused on their schoolwork.
“My oldest is pretty disciplined so that’s been easy, but our 5-year-old has a little trouble staying engaged for an extended period of time,” says Ayesha. She and Steph learned that it has been helpful for Ryan to “do some kind of physical activity right before class starts to focus the mind and get some of the wiggles out, and periodic ‘dance breaks’ between lessons.”
Another trick that Ayesha uses to keep Ryan focused is adding “resistance workout bands to the legs of her chair, which give her something to do if she gets antsy during a long Zoom session.” In fact, Ayesha and Steph make it a point to ensure their kids stay active and have fun outdoors when they aren’t studying. “The kids are small with a ton of energy, so whenever possible, we’ve been trying to get them outdoors. We’ve been doing family hikes and when the weather’s hot, [we] hang out together by the pool,” said Ayesha.
Ayesha Curry, a renowned chef and restaurateur, recently released her new cookbook The Full Plate. Her new cookbook is full of delicious recipes that can be made quickly and efficiently, which are very useful for working parents like her. “I’m a working mom with three small kids now, so I have less time to devote to cooking and meal prep than I did before,” says Ayesha. “But because I refuse to sacrifice on the quality of the meal, I’ve spent the last few years figuring out ways to develop great flavor in as little time and with as little effort as possible.”
