    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.
