The NSPCC has created a new webpage with information and advice for parents or carers who are worried a child or young person may be struggling with their mental health or has anxiety about Coronavirus.
The webpage includes information on: talking about feelings and worries; keeping in touch and balancing screen time; ways to create structure and routine; and helping to give children a sense of control. Read the information and advice:
A new free book illustrated by Axel Scheffler explains the coronavirus to children and the measures taken to control it. The authors have worked with experts to answer key questions to help children understand the changing world around them in simple and age-appropriate language for primary school age children. It’s really lovely.
