Talking to Your Children about the Coronavirus with Caroline Maguire
With our own emotions taxed during this time of pandemic, it’s easy to misunderstand how our children are living through this same experience. These emotions of fear and uncertainty are amplified for them, and figuring out how to talk about both the disease and the isolation as unique events is becoming more critical in helping them to understand why we are living the way we are right now.
This week on the show, coach and author Caroline Maguire is back to help us through these thorny issues. Her book, Why Will No One Play With Me? has already helped so many in our own community addressing social challenges for our kids. Today, we’re turning the tools she outlines in the book toward living through the pandemic together.
