Talking to Kids About Coronavirus: Live Discussion with Q&A

Posted By:

How do we talk to kids about this pandemic? How can we thoughtfully answer their questions when we have so many ourselves? From parent of toddler to teen, Dr. Cara Natterson is here to help guide parents of toddlers and teens on communicating the importance and gravity of the situation without causing panic and anxiety. Knowing how to balance information with assurance is an art – especially when we may be consumed with grief and overwhelm.

Join us for a live (FREE) Webinar with Q+A on April 8th at 11am PT with Dr. Cara Natterson, pediatrician and award-winning author. Bring all questions about the virus (Does it live on pet hair? Are playdates ok if everyone shows no signs after two weeks? How do I communicate the seriousness ot this situation to my teen?) and how to best keep your children safe and appropriately informed.

Part of The Mother Company’s expert series on Parenting in a Pandemic.
