    Tips:

    1. Children are likely already aware of the developing situation. Start the conversation by asking them what they've heard about it.
    2. Ask children about the conversations they are having with their peers regarding the pandemic.
    3. Use factual information and age-appropriate language.
    4. Tell children the truth to avoid creating additional anxiety over speculations and guesses.
    5. Limit young children's exposure to news media outlets.

    If you feel your child is experiencing a crisis, reach out to a local health provider or text 741741
