Support your Older Family Members
The fact that coronavirus appears most deadly in older people and those with underlying medical conditions has been reassuring for some who are young and relatively healthy. But some have gone beyond reassurance and into dismissing coronavirus as unimportant because it “only” kills the old and sick.
Talk to Your Kids About COVID-19
Talk to Your Kids
When stress is heightened — which it is for all of us right now because of the COVID-19 pandemic — children become aware of it and they try to locate the source of the stress. It is important to both acknowledge their concerns and be open to discussing them.
Helping children to make sense of the consequences of COVID-19 and helping them to organize their thoughts and feelings is the best approach.
As a first step, ask your child what they know about COVID-19 or what they have heard about it. If they don’t seem too concerned, you do not need to have an in-depth conversation about it. You can simply reinforce the importance of handwashing and letting you know if they are feeling unwell.
However, if your child voices worry or concern about COVID-19, you can correct any misinformation and provide them with emotional support.
