Caring for emotional well-being during the pandemic
Concern over this new virus can make families anxious. Here are a few tips from Cincinnati Children’s Hospital:
- Manage your own anxiety by limiting your exposure to the news.
- Ask your child what they know in order to address misinformation.
- Ask your child what they’re worried about so that you can ease their anxiety directly.
- Explain facts on a developmental level—be honest and revisit only if needed.
- Explain what is being done at the community level.
- Explain what your family is doing.
- Reinforce kindness & tolerance.
