Talking to Kids About COVID-19

These are truly extraordinary times. Many parents and teachers around the world are all feeling a growing anxiety about the novel coronavirus, or COVID-19.

Our children and youth are watching the COVID-19 pandemic unfold and are listening in as adults, or endless 24/7 news and social media streams, discuss the crisis and its many complications. Here to help us communicate with our kids about what we know, what we should do, and how we will get through this, is a Guide from Dr Philip McRae of the Alberta (Canada) Teacher’s Association and our own Mediatrician.

Below is the downloadable and printable Guide to help you talk to your kids about COVID-19 and help assure them that by working together, we will get through this pandemic.
