Staying connected with our children through COVID-19


You’re in good (virtual) company if you are concerned about how to help your children cope with all the changes, uncertainty and disruptions caused by the Coronavirus pandemic. Parents, carers and children are experiencing a lot of fear, worry and anxiety so it is important to talk, connect and provide comfort to each other. And the good news is, there is support out there to help you do this!

There are a number of resources available for you to help explain things in a way that your children can understand. It is important to give your children the facts at a level that suits their age and understanding.

The Australian Childhood Foundation has produced this poster to give you ways to share connections, comfort and care with children in these times of crisis. We hope it helps.

Stay safe, well and connected.
