Helping Children During the COVID-19 Pandemic
There are some things families can do to support their children during school closure related to the COVID-19 pandemic. While health and physical safety is a priority, it is also important to consider how children are thinking, feeling and talking about what is happening around them. Here is a link to facts about COVID-19.
Talk to Your Children:
- Ask your child to tell you what he or she knows about COVID-19. You can share facts as needed.
- Help children draw pictures or other activities to express themselves.
- Be extra patient and provide comfort if children say they are worried.
- Limit screen time about COVID-19.
Be Mindful of Your Routine:
- Mark off the days on a calendar. Show children that school will start again in a few weeks.
- Keep your family’s bedtime, meal, and exercise routines consistent.
- Find ways to include movement and physical activity, such as jumping jacks or stretches.
- Do things at home that have made you and your family feel better in other stressful situations, including, reading the bible, watching movies, listening to music, playing games, exercising, or various worship activities with God.
- Practice online learning that may be offered by your church or on youtube.
- It is normal for students to feel lonely, worried, or bored. A regular routine can help.
- Include children in chores around the house so they can feel a sense of accomplishment.
- Limit screen time.
Care for Yourself so You Can Care for Others:
- As a parent or caregiver, take small breaks.
- Be aware of your feelings. See these suggestions: Ways to Untwist Your Thinking.
- Connect with friends and family by phone, text, or email to find support.
- You are a role model for your children. How you handle this stressful situation can affect how your children manage their worries.
