COVID-19 Resources for Kids and Families
With all the news about COVID-19 – the coronavirus – it can be hard to know what to say to children and it can be difficult to know how to ease their concerns. Mister Rogers once said, “Anything that’s human is mentionable, and anything that is mentionable can be more manageable. When we can talk about our feelings, they become less overwhelming, less upsetting and less scary.”
To help you ease your child’s anxieties and help them learn to handle scary situations, we have compiled these resources from PBS Kids and the Meet the Helpers project:
