VIRAL! THIS MAMA SWAPS TREATS FOR HOUSEHOLD CHORES AT “MAMA’S HOME QUARANTINE STORE”

By JESSICA PAG-IWAYAN

With the implementation of community quarantine, one of the daunting tasks for mothers, aside from looking after the welfare of the whole family, is how to keep their children busy. 

Hycinth Clor de Arta, a mother from Davao del Norte, found a creative way. With the hope of becoming productive all throughout the quarantine period, she set up the Mama’s Home Quarantine Store. 

It’s an in-house sari-sari store where her children can buy snacks such as biscuits and candies.

But instead of using real money, her family uses play money. Her children can earn money by doing household chores. 

Some of the chores are cleaning the kitchen and bedroom, and washing plates. Each task has its own corresponding price fee. “Nothing is free now,” she says. “You have to teach them how to earn money and how to work to get the things they want.”

Aside from teaching her kids the value of hard work and training them to do household chores, her method also reminds her kids of the importance of good hygiene to stop the transmission of COVID-19 by setting up store rules. 

Her store is open only from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Without wearing a mask, a customer is not allowed in the store. They also need to sanitize their hands before buying anything and observe social distancing.

Her creative way of teaching her kids and keeping them busy caught the attention of the netizens. As of writing, her post has already garnered 75,000 shares.
