Talking about Covid-19 with your children

Knowing how to talk to your child about the Coronavirus is very challenging particularly given the high levels of anxiety that the pandemic will be causing in communities.

 

Our Educational Psychologist has forwarded these links which I think offer very useful guidance from professionals and are worth sharing with you so you can feel equipped to support your child.
