Talking With Your Children About COVID-19
The kids have questions…and lots of them!
Why are we off school? Why can’t we play with our friends, or see grandma and grandpa? Why is church cancelled, and why are we stuck with nothing fun to do?
What is the Coronavirus and/or COVID-19? Why are so many people dying?
Why are my parents so obsessed with the news, the internet and the telephone?
What does God have to do with what’s going on? Does God have something to do with what’s going on?
This is new, uncharted territory for most of us, and we wonder how we are to answer our children’s many questions the best way we can. There is no perfect answer to “What do we say to the kids?” but there are some good guidelines to help us discern what is best for our family.mor
