Talking to Kids About Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Many Alberta parents and teachers are wondering what to say to kids during these extraordinary times. We don’t want to scare kids, but we must be truthful and find ways to talk to them honestly and hopefully about COVID-19. 
Dr Phil McRae of the Alberta Teachers’ Association invited his friend and colleague, Dr Michael Rich—Pediatrician at Boston Children’s Hospital and Professor at Harvard Medical School and School of Public Health—to discuss how parents and teachers can get through this together with our kids.
The interactive PDF and online resource provide suggestions on what might be said to children and youth during the pandemic, what can be done to support our public health care system in Alberta, and how we will get through this together.
