Here’s a recommeneded resource to use when talking with children about their experiences and feelings related to COVID-19. It’s wild to stop our usual activities. Most children have never heard about serious viruses or the need to shelter in place. Children and famlies have some challenging feelings about the disruption.These printable resources may help.
The story may be denser than most young children will care about upon initial exposure. Caregivers can introduce the story in a simplified manner and wait to hear children’s comments and questions before sharing more details.
