The COVID-19 pandemic is incomprehensible for even the most informed adults. For children, many of whom had their daily routines abruptly interrupted and replaced by confusing new restrictions on their ability to study, play with friends, and even celebrate birthdays, this can be a particularly confusing and stressful time.
How do we speak to our children about COVID-19, especially as we navigate our own health and financial anxieties, and strive to balance work, home life, and supporting their educational needs?
Join Dr. Erin O’Callaghan (Program Director for the California School of Professional Psychology in the Los Angeles PsyD program at Alliant International University) and Dr. Ronald Stolberg (Professor in the California School of Professional Psychology in the San Diego PsyD program at Alliant International University) as they provide guidance on the developmentally-appropriate options for speaking to children in ways that support their health and the well-being of the entire family.
