Whether your child has overheard adults discussing Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) or seen people wearing face masks, it’s likely your child knows something about the epidemic. While the parental instinct to protect your children from worry may steer you away from talking about COVID-19 with them, their worry may actually increase by not talking about it with you. You are your child’s most reliable source of information. Keep in mind, children also look to their parents to determine how to interpret and feel about a situation.
