Talking to Children About COVID-19 (Coronavirus)
  • Remain calm and reassuring. 

  • Children will react to and follow your verbal and nonverbal reactions.

  • What you say and do about COVID-19, current prevention efforts, and related events can either increase or decrease your children’s anxiety.

  • If true, emphasize to your children that they and your family are fine.

  • Remind them that you and the adults at their school are there to keep them safe and healthy.

  • Let your children talk about their feelings and help reframe their concerns into the appropriate perspective.
