Frequently Asked Question:
I have young children. How can I talk to them about coronavirus?
- Take the time to answer your kids’ questions. Ask them what they’re hearing from friends or on TV. Discourage older kids from getting their info from social media. Let them know they can come to you instead.
- Be calm and reassuring. Children learn from not only what you say but how you say it.
- Be honest. Give your child only as much information as you think they can handle. Use simple, age-appropriate words. Let them know that doctors and others are working hard to make sure everyone stays healthy.
