Click here for a PDF text summary of the webpage if watching videos online is not possible for you.

Visit the Child Mind Institute for a 4-min video of tips for talking to kids of all ages about the coronavirus (Don't be afraid to discuss it, be developmentally appropriate, take cues from them, deal with your own anxiety, be reassuring, focus on what you're doing to stay safe, stick to routine, and keep talking.)
