Talking to our children about COVID-19

13:57 | Mar 30, 2020

Episodes Notes

Staying regulated as parents is the most important way that we can ease anxiety in our children. This is not easy to do during this overwhelming and uncertain time. The COVID-19 pandemic has created anxiety in all of us. Anxiety wears us down both physically and mentally, making it difficult to sleep, eat, and pay attention. It can lead to overreaction and irrational decisions. We want to manage our anxiety for our wellbeing through this difficult time, so we can stay present for our children, especially as we embark on having much more down time at home with them in the coming weeks.
