Talking to Children and Young People About the Virus and its Impact

In this age of 24/7 news, we can find ourselves bombarded from every platform; on our smart phones via constant notification and updates, the rolling TV and online coverage, radio broadcasts and wider commentary. This can be unsettling and in the context of the new coronavirus it can promote fear, anxiety and also misinformation.

Whether we have teenagers with their own digital devices, or younger children hearing it we need to ensure the messages are making sense and that we’re available to respond to their questions.

Join us for an interactive 45 minutes with best practice communication strategies from a parent coach. We’ll look at minimising the pressure and increasing our awareness of what our children and young people need from us in these extraordinary times.
