Navigating the COVID-19 Disease Outbreak with your Child

As schools close and workplaces go remote to prevent the spread of the new coronavirus, parents everywhere are struggling to keep children safe, healthy and occupied. If you are a parent or caregiver feeling unsure or anxious about how to protect and nurture children through this crisis – while often juggling work obligations at the same time -- you are not alone. Families all over the world are with you on this one.

Here are 5 tips from the early childhood experts at My Messy Box to help calm fears, manage stress, maintain peace and most importantly, tide you and your family through as the outbreak continues.

Depending on your child’s ages, stages and temperaments, some children will require more reassurance or time to transition as compared to others. The situation is unique, and so is your child. Keep your expectations in check.

The days ahead will be different for us all, notwithstanding how difficult it must be for some of us too. But this need not be a bad time for your family. You and your child will get through this – and, who knows, you may even be a little better for it in the end.

As such, we have come up with a 14-day free downloadable resource pack for you and little ones! Click here to view.
