Hey Parents and Happy Monday!
While COVID-19 has overtaken our everyday jargon, it still might be a foreign topic to your kids. Sure, they know that “bad corona virus” is causing them not to be at school. Otherwise, they might not fully understand and still have a lot of questions.
Here are some helpful videos/online books that can help explain our current situation to your kids!

Sesame Street – Abby
Why We Stay Home Story
Talking about Handwashing, Facemasks, and Germs
Showing How Masks Help Keep People Safe

I hope these resources can be of some help. Remember: different strategies help different families. There’s not a one-size-fits-all coping mechanism, especially for a worldwide pandemic. Don’t get discouraged if some strategies don’t work. Tweak them and personalize them for your family. Above all, be empathetic and be there for your kids. That matters most. 🙂
