    Caring for the Emotional Well-Being of your Families During the COVID-19 Outbreak

    Concern over this new virus can make families anxious. Here are a few tips from Cincinnati Children’s Hospital:1) Manage your own anxiety by limiting your exposure to the news; 2) Ask your child what they know in order to address misinformation; 3) Ask your child what they’re worried about so that you can ease their anxiety directly; 4) Explain facts on a developmental level—be honest and revisit only if needed; 5)Explain what is being done at the community level; 6) Explain what your family is doing; 6) Reinforce kindness & tolerance.
