How should I talk to my children about COVID-19?
Your children are looking to you as a model for how they should think, act,
and feel right now. If you give a sense of calm and reassurance, they will
feel calm and reassured. Be honest. Explain what's happening on their level.
For example, regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19), you can say, "It's a very
new virus. Scientists and doctors are working very hard to keep people safe
and healthy. We need to work hard to take good care of ourselves so that we
can be safe and healthy." Be aware of the amount of information you and your
child are receiving. Take care to get your information from a verified site
like the Center for Disease Control.
