ENCORE: Is There A 'Right Way' To Talk To Your Kids About Coronavirus?
This interview originally aired Apr. 7, 2020.
You don’t have to be sick or even know someone who is to feel the effects of the coronavirus. This virus has gone viral in other ways: scary news about chaotic financial markets, suspended sports events, closed schools and new infection numbers dominate the radio, TV and our conversations.
Panic. Stress. Fear. Our kids are being exposed to all of it. So what do we say to them to keep them calm during this time? Parenting expert, and founder of Boys Alive, and co-host of the podcast On Boys, Janet Allison is joins Idaho Matters to help us navigate this.
As COVID-19 cases spread through the U.S. and Idaho, we’re committed to keeping you updated and informed. You can get updated info on cases, closures and how to stay healthy at any time on our Coronavirus news blog.
