Supporting Students’ Emotional Wellbeing

As more information is shared about the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), you may notice your child experiencing a wider range of emotions such as worry and fear. In addition, with the closure of schools and not being able to interact with friends, school staff, and other caring adults on a regular basis, some children might also experience sadness and frustration. There are many steps you can take to support your child during these uncertain times.

Here are some ideas for families:

 

  • Reassure your child that all feelings are normal
  • Make time to talk with your child about their feelings and questions
  • Limit screen time and access to social media
  • Pay attention to what your child is watching and reading and for how long
  • Model positive self-care strategies, your child is learning how to manage their emotions from the caring adults in their life
  • Provide honest information that is age appropriate and avoid sharing assumptions about who is sick with COVID-19
  • Work with your child to develop a consistent “new” daily routine, samples will be provided later this week.
