Talking with your kids about the COVID-19 (also known as “Coronavirus”):
1. Start by asking them a few questions – have you heard about this virus? What do you know about it? This way, you will know what they already know.
2. Tell them about the virus in short, show them that you are not panicking over it. Stay calm.
3. Talk about the things you can do to avoid getting sick: wash your hands frequently, sneeze into the elbow, use antibacterial gel when you can’t wash your hands, etc.
4. If your child tells you he is scared, don’t dismiss his feelings, offer him ways to deal with his fears – don’t be afraid to get creative!
