Social Emotional Resources for Talking to Children

  • PBSkids for Parents: How to Talk to Your Kids about Coronavirus:  PBSkids for Parents has created a great article full of tips for talking with kids about Coronavirus to ensure their feelings and emotions are addressed as well as resources for handwashing and other health and safety routines.
  • Conscious Discipline: 5 Helpful Responses for Families:  Safety is the brain’s most basic need, followed closely by connection. When we feel unsafe or disconnected, our brains downshift from the parts responsible for learning and problem solving, to the more reaction-based parts. That’s why those challenging behaviors are popping up, and why a minor frustration is now Titanic in size.  We can help children (and ourselves) by creating a sense of safety, connecting, and cultivating a new sense of normal with these five tips.
