Advice for parents and carers from the Department for Education
Supporting children through the coronavirus:
The outbreak of Covid-19 means that many aspects of children’s ‘normal’ routines have been abruptly and significantly changed. Many children are now spending much of their time at home with their immediate family and are not able to have direct contact with their wider family and friends.
This will be an anxious time for many children, they may have worries and questions about how the virus might affect them and those close to them, especially older members of their family and those already in poor health.
Tips for supporting children with Coronavirus-related worries
1. Deal with the news head-on and talk about it openly and calmly, giving them the facts
