In part 4 of the Famous at Home series during social isolation, we talk about how to talk to your kids about coronavirus. Kids, too, have had their schedules and routines interrupted. But, unlike many adults, kids don’t always know how to communicate fear, sadness, or confusion. Making it more difficult is that a child’s feelings will often come out through behavior–either behavior we don’t pick up on, or behavior we don’t like. So not only do we punish the behavior, we punish the negative emotion too.
In this episode, we provide practical ways we can talk to our kids about coronavirus without making these mistakes. We also talk about what our kids need most during this time, how we can settle their hearts, and how we can make the most of the time we get together as families.
