I would love to know how your child is doing and how I can support your family during this difficult time.
Please email me if you are having any concerns or if you just want to say hi. I will check and respond to all emails daily.

How to Talk to Your Kids About the Coronavirus
Share age appropriate facts and correct misinformation. Listen to your child’s concerns, validate their feelings and reassure your child that you are available to talk.
Kids will take their cue from you on how to react to this situation. If you are
calm, then chances are your kid’s response will also be similar. Remind them that
right now, lots of amazing grown ups are working hard to keep people healthy.
Harvard’s Dr. Richard Weissbourd shared, kids and adults alike are “more distressed when we
feel helpless and passive, and more comfortable when we are taking action.” The hygiene
routines that slow down the spread of COVID-19 are the same habits that keep us healthy
all year round.
