Speaking to Children About the Coronavirus

Children are bombarded with images from the news and social media about the impact the Coronavirus has been having on the world. It is absolutely understandable if children are feeling anxious, scared and confused.

Although it is important to educate our children about this pandemic, we want to be mindful about how we communicate to them and be cautious of not transmitting our own fears to our children. Below are some helpful websites with tips on how you can speak to your children about the Coronavirus. We hope you will find them useful.
