Whether your child is 6, 16, or 26, we have an important opportunity to share our “story” with our family about this difficult time. In The New York Times, pediatricians discuss how to create that narrative in their article, How Are You Telling Children the Story of the Pandemic? It can be a challenge to find the right words, being truthful without creating more stress, based upon a child’s age and capacity to understand. Hope this helps.
Everyone, stay well!
